Radishes with Herbed Butter on Baguette

I've never been much of a fan of radishes, but I don't think I ever really knew what to do with them. I discovered these beautiful Easter Egg radishes at my local market, and I just couldn't resist them. I'd heard that people ate them with butter and salt (two of my favorite things!), and it seemed like it was high time that I gave it a try.
We wanted to revisit our homemade butter, but it turned out we both decided to take advantage of our toddlers' naps by napping ourselves rather than making butter. Still, it would be so good with homemade butter. (Note to selves: next time we must use fresh butter!) We took our supermarket butter and creamed it with some parsley, lemon, and kosher salt. The herbed butter was the perfect accompaniment to the mild radishes' peppery bite.

Radishes with Herbed Butter on Baguette
  • 6 tbs unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbs parsley, minced
  • spritz of lemon
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 6 radishes, sliced thinly
  • 1 small baguette, sliced
  • parsley, for garnish
Mix together butter, parsley, lemon juice, and salt in a small bowl. Spread herbed butter on a slice of baguette, top with a slice or two of radish. Top with a sprig of parsley! Repeat. 


  1. I've always wondered how butter with radishes tasted. So glad you tried it. These seem perfect for a spring lunch. Might be nice with fresh chives that are popping up in the garden right now.

  2. Looks delish. My radishes should be ready to pick very soon! Will have to give this a try. HX!

  3. I made something super similar recently. So simple, and yet so delicious. Who knew radishes with herbs and butter could be so good! Gorgeous post.

  4. Yum, this looks so simple and so delicious!

  5. amazing flavor combo that i learned about from the kitchen. great presentation and i like the addition of lemon here. i bookmarked it with my account!

  6. Herbed butter adds taste to the plain and bland cream.
