Radish Butter

– Updated March 2022 with a new recipe card –

I bet you’re thinking, what the wha?

Radish and butter doesn’t sound like a pair that you would traditionally combine, but did you know this odd duo is a favorite snack in France? They dip whole radishes into softened butter and sprinkle it with a fair amount of high quality salt. If you’ve never had it before, it is divine! It cuts that seemingly harsh flavor of the radish and creates a lovely treat that you might get addicted to!

Radish Butter.

I like fun and flavored butters and am always looking for ways to wow my dinner guests, so this Radish Butter was a no brainer! Super easy and outrageously tasty, it’s the perfect accompaniment to all your bread serving this holiday. Plus, can the colors be any better? Red and green add to the upcoming holiday festivities, but don’t let that stop you from using all the other beautiful colors radishes come in nowadays (Easter egg variety).  

Radish Bunch

Purple, pink, white and traditional red radishes are in season right now so that means they are inexpensive and in full stock at your local store or market. I even have some growing in my garden so we have gotten accustomed to eating them a lot. I’ve even got my hubby fully on board!

We just recently discovered topping our tacos with radish and I may not ever have a taco without radish again!

Sliced radishes

This teeny tiny radish chop is pretty simple and the bulbs are easy to handle. Start by cutting the radish bulb ends off and slicing thin medallions from the flesh.

Thinly Sliced radishes

Now stack 4 to 5 medallions on top of each other and slice to create matchsticks.

Chopped radishes

Turn the matchsticks and cut again, making a very small chop of each bulb.

Radish Butter

I had to dig right into my butter.

However, I recommend allowing the ingredients to marry their flavors for a few hours before serving.

Radish Butter

This butter is not only perfect for fresh French bread, but try it on crackers, grilled steak, or even your morning toast!

Radishes are just way too delicious to be left to the side as a garnish. We think the radish is the star of the show, and this Watermelon Radish Salad recipe proves it.

One thought on “Radish Butter: Easy + Delicious Radish Recipe!

  1. Love radishes. i also use daikon radish. I shred them in a food processor then squeeze them in my hands to drain the liquid (lots of liquid here!!). I transfer them to a bowl add diced green onions and shallots and season with salt and some siracha (to taste). Love the spice!! Toss well.
    Let mixture sit in fridge over night and wow!!! Great side salad.
