One of the first crops of spring, French breakfast radishes have red shoulders, white tips, and varying degrees of spiciness.
Shaved Radish, Fennel, and Parmesan Salad
Enjoy this crisp, refreshing slaw on its own or pair it with a hearty main. The mellow flavor of raw fennel balances the radishes' spicy bite. Nutty Parmesan brings it all together.
Light Cherry Cheesecake
This cheesecake boasts a velvety texture with less fat than the original, thanks to lighter versions of cream cheese and sour cream, plus plenty of cottage cheese.
Hard-cooked eggs aren't just for decorating. Here's another seasonal way to enjoy them: in asparagus mimosa, a classic dish named for the pretty yellow-and-white flower. Press a peeled hard-cooked egg through a fine, stainless steel sieve to create the bright and fluffy garnish.
Vanilla Chia Pudding
Chia seeds are available at health-food stores and online. They're rich in omega-3s, fiber, and antioxidants.
