Roasted Radishes with Feta Mint Sauce Recipe

This recipe makes more sauce than you need, but you'll be happy for the extra. Use it as a salad dressing, on other roasted vegetables, or on grilled beef or lamb.
Preheat the oven to 425°.
Roast the radishes: Pour the oil onto a rimmed baking sheet, tilting the sheet to spread it evenly. Place the radishes in the oil, turning to coat them, and then arrange each radish, cut-side down, on the sheet. Sprinkle with salt. Roast until the radishes are deeply golden on the cut side, 25 to 30 minutes.
While the radishes roast, make the sauce: Combine the feta, olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, mint and several grinds of pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth, adding up to 3 tablespoons stock to make the sauce pourable.
To serve, puddle the sauce on a platter or four individual plates. Top with the radishes.
