Easter sides are depressingly predictable. There will be asparagus, of course. If you’re lucky, there might even be three or four variations of asparagus. And there will be peas. And gratin potatoes. And probably some sort of salad that most people will only eat to be polite. Not that there’s anything wrong with any of this.
It’s just that it would be nice to offer something … different. So we’ll help you with this one. Try our butter roasted radishes with tarragon and lemon. It’s a simple dish that comes together in minutes, but has a wonderful flavor that is both rich and light and lemony — the perfect combination for spring.
