You know when you see dishes on a menu that make you go, “Those food items can’t possibly taste great together,” so of course it must be ordered. The plate lands on the table. You look skeptical, as does your dining companion. Then you oh so carefully assemble every ingredient onto your utensil as to not omit key flavors. The first bite lands, some chewing, and then you brain goes fuzzy. It can’t create words to describe the messages your taste buds are sending to your temporal lobe. This doesn’t make sense. It SHOULDN’T make sense. But somehow it does, and it is absolutely delicious.
My radishes with herbed butter and salt is very much this kind of recipe. It is also a guideline recipe. Improvisations are welcome.
It is also a well done knockoff of a dish enjoyed at The Ordinary in Charleston, SC.
RADISHES w/ HERBED BUTTER + SALT
- 1 stick salted butter, room temperature
- 2 tsp. chives, finely chopped
- 2 tsp. parsley, finely chopped
- a few radish leaves, finely chopped
- radishes, clean + halved

- Combine the softened butter with herbs and place in a pretty serving bowl. Set aside.
