Radishes with Butter and Salt

My friend, Jennifer, introduced me to the lovely dish- Radishes with salt and softened butter.

I had no idea it was such a French dish but it's very yummy.

Some people cut a little wedge in the radish, put the butter in the wedge and drag the radish through the salt. (This seems a little labor intensive to me.)

Maybe Shaboom can weigh in on this one.

All I know is that I have discovered the radish. I have learned to admire it, taste it, and appreciate the delicate flavor.

This is my new dinner.

During the day I'm drinking carrot juice. It's like a sugary snack.

And this big boy. Wow. I cut it into fourths, steam it, and have one fourth a day for lunch.
I make a mayo with curry and cayenne. Mmmmm.

All this, a 2 mile walk, and I'm back on The French Skinny.

Bon App├ętit.


  1. love radishes with salt and butter!! i get a nice french baguette, spread some butter over it, slice up the radishes and sprinkle with sea salt! YUM!! a perfect lunch on a hot summer day!!

  2. I do what Rae does. It's sensational!

  3. My mom used to tell us the story of celia the radish, it ends badly when a man pulls her out of her bathtub full of butter, dips her in salt and eats her.

  4. clem - sounds like a happy ending in my book!
