Radishes with Herbed Butter
Happy Wednesday guys! It's mid-week and I'm definitely anxiously awaiting for the weekend to arrive! I need it!
Now, it's kinda late, so I'm gonna post something rather quick.
Radishes are one of those things I can take or leave. They're okay, but I think besides their somewhat peppery taste - just don't do anything for me. But add some butter (that's been laced with garden fresh herbs), and we have a different story. A quick and easy snack - or even a snappy appetizer in a pinch for a dinner party.
1 bunch of radishes, cut in half
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
small handful of fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro, oregano - whatever you prefer)
salt and pepper, to taste
In a small bowl, combine the butter and herbs of your choice - I think I went with some cilantro here. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
You can be fancy and put the butter in a pastry bag to top the radish halves, but I went old fashioned and just slathered a bit on with a knife.
And voila, instant snack.
And really, the herbed butter can go on practically anything you put butter on - not just radishes!
Have a great rest of your Wednesday, even though there's only about an hour left of it!
Don't forget, if you have a CSA or Farmer's Market haul you'd like to share - e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll include you in the roundup tomorrow afternoon!
