Recipe: Salted Radishes and Butter on Toast with Baby Shallots

6 Feb

Nothing is more decadent and easy as radishes lavished with fine butter and coarse salt.  Eat this snack and pretend like you’re in Paris.


  • French baguette, thinly sliced on the bias
  • Radishes, thinly sliced (1 per person)
  • Fine unsalted butter, softened (French is best for this, but I bought Irish butter at Trader Joes – as long as it has a high butter fat content and tastes delicious on its own, it will work)
  • The green part of the baby shallots from this weeks haul, finely sliced (chives will work too)
  • Good kosher salt or other fancy salt

Toast the bread, lavish the butter on the bread (use more butter than you think you should) layer on radish slices and sprinkle with salt and greens.  Enjoy with a French accent.

    Thanks for this! Currently my fridge has 2 bunches of radish, one from this week and one from last week, because I just didn’t know what to do with them. I’ll definitely give this a try, and hopefully will be radish free before the Friday pick up!
