Radish Crostini

The radishes were another gorgeous item we saw at the farmers market this past weekend. When we walked past this bunch on the table the 8 year-old said “I want some of those”.


Of course, I had to grab a bunch to take home. Such beauties.


Knowing radishes have a bite, I didn’t want that to be my son’s first taste of a radish. I figured I’d sweetened to deal with some butter.

This is my absolute favorite way to eat radishes. I especially love this combo on a steamy summer day. The cool crisp radish with the sweet butter. The touch of salt is the pièce de résistance!

He loved it! Phew.

We were having a going away party for our friends so I made up a batch to serve. Spread some butter on grilled bread, top with sliced radish and top with a pinch of salt. These went fast!

    I love everything about this and never would have thought to use radish as crostini – I plan on pickling the turnips I bought last week – never got around to it. Happy Friday!

    I saw your photo on Instagram and like Biz I would have never thought of using them this way. It’s taken me a while to get used to radishes, but last summer I kept getting big bags of radishes in our CSA. Now I love them, but I’m always trying to find new ways to use them rather than just raw in a salad.
