Strawberry-Heirloom Radish Relish Bruschetta

Today I’m going to share the second recipe from our Beer Dinner last week – Strawberry-Heirloom Radish Relish Bruschetta, our appetizer for the evening.


We have a few winter-hearty vegetables growing in our vegetable garden today: radishes, cilantro, and oregano. We didn’t have much luck with the radishes last year, so we scattered a ton of seeds this year and hoped for the best. We didn’t have the heart to thin them as they started growing, so we have a lot of small radishes to enjoy now. Gardening Lesson of the Day: thin your veggies! I think we would have ended up with much larger plants had we followed that rule, but we are fairly amateur gardeners. =)


Strawberry-Heirloom Radish Relish Bruschetta
Serves: 2
  • 6 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 6 teaspoons white wine vinegar, divided
  • 8 strawberries
  • 8-16 blueberries
  • 3-4 radishes
  • ¼ cup radish greens
  • ¼ cup kale
  • ¼ cup arugula
  • 6 toast rounds
  1. Relish
  2. Coarsely chop 4 strawberries and place in a small bowl. Add 4 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar, 4 teaspoons white wine vinegar, and 4-8 blueberries. Soak for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Transfer mixture to saucepan and smash the berries.
  4. Cook over medium heat to reduce until a jammy consistency. Reduce heat as needed to maintain a simmer. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching.
  5. Bruschetta Topping
  6. Coarsely chop 3-4 radishes (depending on size) and place in a small bowl.
  7. Coarsely chop (or tear) radish greens, kale, & arugula and add to radishes.
  8. Top with 1-2 teaspoons of white balsamic and 1-2 teaspoons white wine vinegar. Massage into greens until softened.
  9. Add 4 sliced strawberries and 4-8 blueberries
  10. Final Assembly
  11. Top each toast round with 1 teaspoon of relish and equal parts bruschetta topping.

    Mmm, scotch tasting! Every year we plant a little herb garden but haven’t branched out into vegetables yet. I think we’re gonna buy a plot in a community garden this year though so Jeff can grow hops and I can overload us with tomatoes.

      Community gardens seem like a great way to get started, my in-laws have been talking about doing that too. And you can never have too many tomatoes in our house. :)

      Container gardens would work well for a lot of fruits & veggies too – as long as you remember to water them (or get those continuous watering pots). Thanks for the complement. :)

      I’m no green-thumb, but I am getting better. I killed some type of fern my mom got me years ago that she swore was un-killable! I think having an irrigation system helps significantly for me. :)
