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.


Ingredients:



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 mtlabor85@yahoo.com and I'll include you in the roundup tomorrow afternoon!

  15. Oh my goodness, I love radishes. I always joke that my German ancestry is to blame, but really I just love how they kind of make your nose feel funny if you eat enough of them (and I always do).

    I love them sliced with salt, layered on top of slices of tomato and stacked onto crusty bread. My squeeze just stares at me like I'm nuts (& I guess I kind of am).

  16. I never had radish with butter before, but I know some people like it as a snack just dipped in a bit of salt. I on the other hand always pickle them. Yes they will loose the nice colour, but they taste soooo good!
