avocado radish crostini

When we go grocery shopping, it seems like we buy the same staple vegetables every time we go. But then, the grocery store usually only carries what it seems like the same staple vegies. I wanted to pick up something I haven't eaten in a while.

That's when I spotted a pretty bunch of radishes at the grocery store and brought them home. I had intended to just use them to brighten up my salad but came across this recipe and thought I'd give them a try. It was fresh tasting and I really liked the lime kick with the radishes and avocado. Pretty looking appetizer for sure.
