Watermelon Radish Carpaccio with Microgreens

Watermelon Radish Carpaccio with Microgreens and Honey Dijon DressingThis stuff is sooooo good I could eat it by buckets! I’m telling ya, I don’t know when exactly I acquired this tendency of overcomplicating my recipes, but it does get in a way of me remembering that delicious food sometimes, and oftentimes, can be incredibly simple.

I bought these radishes for the sole purpose of photographing them. Yeap, I do that. I sometimes buy ingredients just to photograph them. What can I say?! Gotta feed that obsession. And the box of mixed microgreens I bought on the same shopping trip just because my gaze accidentally stopped on them when I was browsing a produce section. I saw them and I suddenly remembered that every time I eat out in some trendy restaurant and I get a salad or an appetizer with those tiny sprouts in it, I keep thinking that I must try using those microgreens in my recipes. Of course, I never ever remember that bright thought once it’s time for a grocery shopping.

Here I am, with a new SIMPLE (can’t stress that word enough) recipe brought to you by two accidental ingredients that were bought with no purpose. And that makes me a happy and proud food blogger!
