Raw Roasted Radishes

I like radishes, but I was getting bored of slicing them to toss on top of a salad, and they come in my CSA basket just about every week. The farm newsletter recommended roasting them. I figured what's good for the oven was good for the dehydrator.

Quite simple:

Cut the cleaned radishes into halves or quarters, depending on what size you want. Mix with your favorite Raw Italian Dressing. I used a modified version of this one. Dehydrate for 3-4 hours at 105 degrees. Serve warm over a bed of spinach, pouring the the excess dressing on top. Add whatever you want to finish the salad. I went with avocados and tomatoes.

I should've taken a picture. The dressing turns a lovely pink color. Try it!
