radishes with butter and salt

Radish14

As a follow up to the post about freshly churned butter, I thought I would share a few ideas of how to showcase homemade butter with the respect it deserves.  I immediately thought of radishes.  Only the French would be so bold, yet cheekily whimsical, to pair peppery radishes with creamy butter, and it is a brilliant combination.  I simply sliced a baguette, buttered one side with a healthy amount of butter, topped with sliced radishes and garnished with extra fleur de sel.  A perfect appetizer to serve during cocktail hour.

Additional pictures continued after the jump…

    Miam (as we say in France). I adore radishes eaten with butter and fleur de sel. THE best way to eat them! 🙂

    I love the photos and colors! I recently made a ghetto version of that amazing quinoa salad we had in Paris – I used cous cous (all I had on hand), edamame and of course radishes! B loved it.

    You and Anne are inspiring! Homemade butter and this…, yummy! I am going to purchase radishes and a baguette now. I will have to use store bought butter though 😦
