Cajun French: le radix (lu ra-dee) – radish
Radish Greens – what to do with them? We ask this question because our farmers market radishes come with the greens. Greens are a favorite of ours but we had never used Radish Greens. In researching recipes, most had an Asian flair and as good as the recipes sounded we wanted a Cajun influence. With our Cajun Culture and Radish Greens we developed a recipe that honored our Cajun Culture as well as infusing the Radish Greens.
