Kids Cook: Strawberry Radish Salsa {and Delaplane Strawberry Festival}

May 29th, 2013 · 71 Comments

We took advantage of the unusually mild weather this past holiday weekend to finally check out the Delaplane Strawberry Festival in Virginia’s Fauquier County. The annual event is packed with old-fashioned family fun, from the cupcake walk and face painting to tug-of-war, potato sack races, hay rides and pony rides. There were food vendors and live music, too. There’s not much better than chowing down on crab cake sandwiches while the kids dance to bluegrass under a bright blue sky.

We capped the day off with strawberry sundaes. Unfortunately they’d sold out of fresh berries, and other local farms were struggling to keep up with demand over the busy weekend. Our cool spring has delayed our summer berries and fruits, but I hear there will be plenty of berries available by this coming weekend.

Whether you pick your berries at the farm or just pick them up at market, here’s a fun salsa recipe that incorporates the radishes that are also in season.

Strawberry Radish Salsa

Recipe: Strawberry Radish Salsa
Makes 4 servings


  • 1 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped radish
  • 1 finely chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey


1. In a small bowl, combine chopped strawberries, radish and green onion.

2. In an even smaller bowl, whisk together honey and vinegar until honey is dissolved. Pour mixture over strawberries and stir gently to combine.

3. Let stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before serving.

(As a reminder, here are some of our favorite places to pick strawberries in Northern Virginia — but remember to ALWAYS call first to confirm availability before you make the trip.)

    I think what you published was very reasonable.
    However, think on this, what iif you added a little information? I am nnot
    suggesting your content is not solid., but what if you
    added a headline that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean ? Blog
    Archve ? Kids Cook: Strawberry Radish Sals and Delaplane Strawberry Festival is
    a little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and note how
    they create post headlines to get people interested.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two too grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more

    Just because one credit reporting agency properly
    reflects payment history does not mean that all three of
    the major credit bureaus will show them accurately.
    Having a broker on your side is definitely going to give you an advantage because they have the knowledge and resources to help you find the mortgage deal that will be the perfect fit for you.
    Mortgage brokers have connection with multiple financial institutions
    and lending resources as your representative, trying to
    get the lowest rate mortgage to meet your requirements.
