Radish Salsa

Sara Jones, Tucson CSA

Use this salsa to garnish your tacos or burritos. It is also
refreshing alongside a steak, or any other heavy, hearty dish.
This is a great salsa with just the cilantro and lime juice, but
you can add the others spices to your personal taste. Soaking
the onion and radish in water for just 10 minutes takes away
some of the smelly sulfur compounds and mellows the flavors
considerably.

About 1 cup radishes, diced into 1/4 inch cubes
1/2 red onion, diced
1 small handful cilantro, chopped
Juice from one lime
Salt to taste
1 pinch toasted mustard seeds (if desired)
1 pinch ground cumin (if desired)
1 pinch ground red pepper (if desired)

Put diced radish and onion into fresh, cold water to soak for 10
minutes. Drain well and toss with lime juice, cilantro, spices
and a pinch of salt. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
