Radish Fries in the air fryer

Hi All, I am so sorry I have been MIA for May.  May is as crazy as December!  We did have our third and youngest daughter graduate from Baylor.  Meg will start a new job as the media specialist for a child protection organization in Austin.  We are so excited for her and this next chapter.

I have been cooking a lot - just family favorites mainly.  Homemade pimento cheese has been a new staple in our house.  I have made it twice recently.  It is so nice to keep in the fridge for sandwiches or snacking with crackers or celery.  I LOVE it.  We started making this years ago during our summer family trips to the beach.  I think it was my very first blog post back in the summer of 2010.  I have been making less than then recipes calls for.  The recipe is 3 lbs of three different cheese - I have been doing two lbs and adding less of everything.  So much of this recipe is going by your preferred taste and texture! 

I have been trying new foods with my air fryer - jicama fries and I even made radish fries recently. And.... I don't like radishes but these are great! I have tried thinly sliced radish fries, thickly sliced  - even sliced extra thin with a mandolin.  Radishes have so much water, I like the little bit thicker slice.  They shrink a lot during cooking.  I like the pre-sliced I got at Walmart yesterday.  I am trying okra fries next! 

Radish Fries

Wash radishes or buy precut radishes.  Slice to desired thickness - maybe 1/8 - 1/4 inch.  Pat dry.  Spritz with an olive oil and toss in sea salt and favorite seasoning.  Cook in air fryer basket at 380 for 10+ minutes, shaking and tossing around about every 4 minutes or so.  Cook until desired texture.  Serve with favorite Ranch or dipping sauce.
