radish dip

what you need
1 pound radishes julienned or grated
1 1/4 cups sour cream
3/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest, 
plus 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
1/3 cup chopped fresh dill 
or two table spoons dried dill

what to do
the original recipe calls for julienned radishes 
but I don't have a fancy tool to julienne for me 
and it's a pain doing it with a knife-
it's one of those things I won't waste 
my time doing so I grated mine.
I took the biggest grate on a cheese 
grater and they came out perfect.
tip: if you do grate- gently press grated radishes 
between paper towels or cloth
before putting into dip- the radishes are 
pretty watery so you want to get as much as the water 
out as possible so it doesn't separate in the dip.

 Combine all ingredients. 
Serve with toasts and whole radishes.
you can make this up to a day ahead of time
and eat it with friends and family
or by yourself slathered on a bagel!
it's kid tested and approved
