Recipe: Radish Dip or Radish Quark

This is an unexpected and tasty dip to accompany spicy foods or to use as a dip for raw veggies. Experiment!

1 cup sliced radishes
1 cup plain yogurt (we use goat)
3 tablespoons soft goat cheese
2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint

Wash and top the radishes before slicing. Add the goat cheese to a small to medium serving bowl and smash with a fork into bits. Add the yogurt and mix well. Add a bit more goat cheese for a thicker dip. Gently fold in the radish slices and mint.

Alternate: If you have dehydrated radish slices, you can use them with this recipe! Either rehydrate them as is and use in this recipe, or grind them into a powder to add to the yogurt and goat cheese.

Another name for this is "radish quark". Quark is a soft, unripened cheese that's similar to sour cream. Herbed quark is the cheese with herbs added, and radish quark is the cheese with sliced radishes added.
