Low-Maintenance Veggies

Friends gave us radish seeds, we planted them, and now we have radishes. Veggies that aren't easily botched are the kind of veggies we like to grow here, and so radishes are now part of the regular rotation.
Recipe suggestions are hereby welcomed.

Lovely photographs. I envy your garden.
I pulled a cucumber/radish salad recipe out of Cooking Light just yesterday.
1.5 C thinly sliced radishes
1 cucumber sliced lengthwise, then 1/4-inch slices
2 T red wine vinegar
1 t olive oil
pepper and salt
Toss above to coat, then add:
5 ounces of Mache, which I'm not smart enough to know what that is. It looks like baby spinach.
Sprinkle with crumbled bleu cheese

This sounds like my kind of salad. And it looks pretty too.

I like to just harvest (or thin) them slightly early and eat the whole thing - greens and all. Just wash well and toss in salad. If they're mature, then eat the whole thing by sauteeing them.

I wrote a bit about it here:
