Watermelon Radish with Soy Scallion-Marinated Tomatoes and Marinated Enoki Mushrooms

Don’t you just love the farmer’s market on a Saturday morning in August? The selection of heirloom vegetables and exotic mushrooms coming into market from farms all over the country is amazing!  This week I am sharing a recipe that really benefits from using the best, most seasonal vegetables.  I used sweet little heirloom cherry tomatoes, vibrant watermelon radishes and light, summery enoki mushrooms.  Each vegetable is marinated in and flavored with it own pronounced ingredients- Sesame, ginger, Thai chili, garlic, soy sauce, mint, cilantro, and mirin- so that when they all come together, each bite is balanced and each component compliments the others. Keep this recipe in mind when you hit your farmer’s market this weekend and experiment with the special varieties your local farmers offer.  Click here to print my recipe for Watermelon Radish with Soy Scallion- Marinated Tomatoes and Marinated Enoki Mushrooms.  I hope you enjoy it!

Fire It Up!
