Eat with the seasons: August

August is full of gorgeous tasty veggies and fruit to hit your five a day.  We’ve picked the brilliant radish as our favourite top pick for August.  Radishes come in a variety of different sizes and colours making them incredibly versatile.  This punchy vegetable belongs to the mustard family, hence it’s peppery taste.  We love the impact they add to salads – a fun pop of colour and a crunchy texture to shake things up.
