Amanda and Merrill's notes on Roasted Radish and Potato Salad with Black Mustard and Cumin Seed on Food52.com:

Roasting radishes softens their bite and makes them mellow; they retain a slight -- but not unpleasant -- bitterness, which really complements the sweet roasted potatoes in gingerroot's salad. The tender, caramelized root vegetables are wrapped in a silky, fragrant dressing of yogurt, green onions and toasted cumin and mustard seed. Fresh lemon juice lifts the whole thing to brightness. And with all the talk about potlucks recently, we think this salad would make a great potluck dish! - A&M

Sauteed Radishes with Mint

Amanda and Merrill's notes on Sauteed Radishes with Mint on Food52.com:

These are radishes coddled so all their sweetness comes out. Exposing much of their surface area to brown butter gives them a pretty caramel color and delicate flavor, which the mint subtly accents. To get beautiful browning but retain some crunch, we cut the radishes into wedges slightly wider than 1/2 an inch and were careful not to crowd the sauté pan, and were rewarded with these golden, perfectly al dente beauties. Be sure to sprinkle on the mint just before serving -- it darkens quickly when exposed to heat. - A&M
