CSA Food Box #20: Bruschetta with Sautéed Radishes

What to do with an accumulation of radishes?  This is it!  Make this quick appetizer before dinner for a tasty treat.  This recipe came from a Bon Appetit Magazine Recipe from a small restaurant, Taste, that sits next door to the larger dinner spot, Niche in St. Louis.  Taste is a spot for guests to get drinks and small plates before dinner. Taste calls this dish, Roasted Radish Bruschetta.  Also check out the creative cocktails served at Taste.
