Radishes with butter and salt is a French classic. Because of its simplicity, it's important to use quality ingredients such as fleur de sel, fresh crunchy radishes and good butter. Good salt simply deepens the flavor of the butter and radishes allowing you to enjoy the simplicity of each ingredient in harmony with each other.
Radishes sandwiched between buttered bread is a traditional children's snack in France. However, you could easily serve individual radishes with a side of butter and salt as a beautiful appetizer.
- 1 bundle of radishes
- a few spoonfuls of fleur de sel or sea salt
- 1/2 stick of butter (unsalted), softened
- 1 baguette, sliced
For sandwiches, spread butter on slices of bread and top with thinly sliced radishes. Sprinkle a small pinch of salt over the radishes. As an spread, nestle rinsed and dried radishes on a bed of salt and serve butter on the side.
