THE BAD: Radishes with butter and salt. Not bad, exactly, but there's something about it I'm not getting. Why is this a classic combination? Radishes are so pretty that I keep buying them at the Greenmarket in hopes that I'll fall in love with them. No luck yet.
THE UGLY: Friday I tried another sardine combination I had read about a couple of places: sardines, cottage cheese, and pickled beets. It didn't sound particularly promising--in fact, it sounded as if someone had asked 10-year-old me to list foods she was sure she would never eat and then combined them in a single dish--but since I saw it recommended more than once, I gave it the benefit of the doubt. And it was so gross. I forced myself to eat it for two lunches and then realized that the sight of its container in the refrigerator was triggering my gag reflex.
