Radish Butter with Lemon and Chives

Have you ever tried Radish Butter? I hadn't ever heard of it until I reviewed this Lee Brothers cookbook. I have been a radish lover for as long as I can remember. I love the crunch, I love the little kick of heat, I love the fabulous hues of red and pink. So...I had a feeling I would love this radish butter...and ya know what?! I do!

You probably have your Easter menu set in stone at this point but...

if you can add this one to your menu, I guarantee you'll be so glad you did! ;)

I added a bit of lemon and chives to the original recipe. I really think this just screams spring!

Radish Butter with Lemon and Chives
by the Ungourmet -inspired by the Lee Bros. Simple, Fresh, Southern

1/2 pound radishes
1 stick of butter, softened
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp chopped chives
kosher salt and cracked black pepper to taste

In a food processor, pulse radishes until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium sized bowl. Stir in the butter, lemon juice, zest, chives, salt and pepper.

Serve with a nice crusty bread or crackers.

This butter would be a wonderful addition to an Easter brunch!

Wishing everyone a blessed Easter!

A perfect spread for the Easter lunch!

Yum - I love radishes and butter on a baguette slice. I give it a sprinkle of sea salt too. That peppery crunch is oh so delish.

Jeannie said...

Lovely colour! Looks good though I must say I am not a salad lover:P
Happy Easter to you and your family:D

I have definitely never heard of this before, but it sounds delicious! I love anything with chives though...they are one of my favorite herbs. Happy easter chica!

Megan said...

This sounds lovely. I've heard of people spreading butter on a piece of toast and then adding a thinly sliced piece of radish on top.

Happy Easter!

Julia said...

It's like radish chutney or radish salsa! My radishes are popping up in the garden. I've got about a month until the hotties are ready now. Mike loves the radishes so maybe I will make him some early. Very nice idea!

Pam said...

This is just great! Love, love radishes and I will be trying this. It's really different and sounds delicious! Zingy too, I bet!

Yummy spread. I don't eat radish too often, but this would be great with some baguette.

Cake Diva said...

You’re talking food to me, butter, bread and radishes. What more can I ask for. Your pictures look really nice. I can just taste it.

Chef Aimee said...

I have never had this before but boy is my interest piqued!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

I, too, have never heard of this. But I just emailed it to myself to give it a try!

FoxyMoron said...

What a great idea, I'm definitely going to give that a try, never heard of such a thing but it sounds delicious.

Molly @ A Bit O' Shine said...

Ooh yum! I do like radishes so I'll have to give this a try! I certainly have enough chives to add (my plants are spreading and spreading)

Kristin said...

Happy Easter pretty lady!

Robyn said...

Wow - this is such an unusual combination, I'm just going to HAVE to try it. I've heard of serving radishes with butter and salt, and I must admit I tried that and didn't really understand the appeal. But this looks like it'll have a more intriguing flavour. Thanks!

Mary said...

Kim, this looks delicious. We occasionally have very thinly sliced radishes on buttered pumpernickel bread and love it. This seems lkie a more sophisticated version of that and I know we'll love it. Easter blessings for you and those you love. Have a wonderful day...Mary

Faith said...

Radish butter is new to me, but I bet it's delicious! I may just have to run to the store for a bunch of radishes! ;) Happy Easter, Kim!

Claudia said...

So pretty for spring an Easter. This would work for any spring celebration. Delicious!

Kristen @ Motherese said...

Your lovely photos just might make me reconsider my childhood (and childish?) feelings on radishes.

Happy Easter!

Hungry Dog said...

I've had radishes WITH butter but never all combined--what a great idea! Thanks for posting, I will remember this.

Rhiannon Nicole said...

Yummy Kim! I really love radishes but never know what to do with them! Hope you had a fantastic Easter :)

This is a great recipe! My daughter is nuts for radishes! I was taught in France to eat radishes on a baguette with a good chunk of butter, so this is bound to be excellent!

Connie Weiss said...

I love radishes! Can't wait to try this one!

Michelle said...

YUM...we love radishes too! Can't wait to try this!

Have you ever roasted radishes..OMG so good!

Joyce W said...

This is delicious. This could be bad. I could eat the whole thing and I dont need to be eating a stick of butter!
