Grated Radish Party Dip
Personally, I like the richness of sour cream in this recipe, but if you want a somewhat lower calorie substitute, you can use Greek-style yogurt for some or all of the sour cream.
1 C grated radishes
4-6 T finely crumbled feta cheese
1 C sour cream
pinch or 2 of salt (to taste)
pinch or 2 of pepper (to taste)
1/2 t finely grated lemon rind
1-2 T chopped fresh parsley
Wash, dry and cut off the roots and leaves/stems of the radishes. Grate radishes on a medium grater. Measure out 1 C and place in a medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir until well-combined. Adjust seasoning. Chill. Serve cold with crudites or potato chips.
I like to doll up this recipe by adding 1/2 to 3/4 C flaked crab meat.
I also like to add a little hot pepper in the form of finely ground red chili flakes.
