Have you ever seen a "Watermelon Radish?" Chef Scott is coloring your salad with beautiful slices from Sunshower Farms.

Thekitchn.com has a great photo.

It's the season for root vegetables, and one of my favorites is the colorful watermelon radish. Green on the outside and pink on the inside, it adds some color to my salads, is pretty to look at, and is yummy!
