Radish Spread

Here is my variation on the classic French theme of radish-sea salt-butter-baguette.  My radish spread with fresh herbs is a great snack to serve with a glass of white wine. There’s just no substitute for fresh herbs and it’s fun to experiment with different combinations.

TIP: Be sure to have the cream cheese at room temperature before your prepare the spread.

Yields 2 cups

  • 1 bunch of radishes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaved parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 block of cream cheese, room temperature
  • zest and juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon flaked sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons crème fraiche
  • toasted baguette slices
  • flaked sea salt for garnish

1. Clean, top and thinly slice the radishes.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine radishes with the dill, parsley and chives.

3. In another medium-sized bowl, combine the cream cheese with the lemon zest and juice, salt, pepper and crème fraiche, stirring until thoroughly combined. Using a gentle hand, add the radish-herb mixture.

4. Spread on toasted baguette slices and garnish with more flaked sea salt. Serve immediately.
