Radishes and Butter.


EDITOR’S NOTE ABOUT ROOT VEGETABLES: Just kidding, y’all. Just kidding. So my mom informed me that the things I was calling turnips for about four hours were actually radishes and radishes are the things that were supposed to be on there in the first place so… These are radishes. I’m up to speed now. Root vegetables are tricky little bastards.

Cheese is like so 2000. Almond butter has run its course. And after NY Mag named avocado toast the most annoying food on Instagram (LOLOLOL), bloggers everywhere are struggling to find something photo-worthy to put on top of bread. If I’ve learned anything from following a bunch of editors from Saveur and Bon Appetit it’s that the next trend in bread toppings is most definitely the tres chic thinly sliced radish and butter.


I like living vicariously through way uppity food editors and when I kept seeing this over and over again I had to take it to real life.

There is obviously no recipe for this (although I’m pretty sure I’ve seen it in Bon Appetit at some point). You need bread + butter + radishes.

I mixed dill into my butter and topped the whole thing with salt and pepper.

So good.

    Is that a turnip, or a radish?

    That’s a turnip? Looks like a radish. When I was in fourth grade, we visited a monestery (a place where monks live and a word that I cannot spell) in Germany. They served a radish sandwich to die for! It was a large, white, sliced radish served with butter on pumpernickel. Soooooooooooo good.

      Oh no. I lose.

    For the uninformed……………this “parentling” thing never ends! ; )

  5. This looks so yummy! There’s not a whole lot that is better than butter on a slice of bread. But adding radishes!!! I love radishes.

  6. I have never tried this, but you better believe I am giong to now!! I am definitely a radish lover 🙂

  7. […] summer produce: tomatoes, dill, cucumbers, RADISHES, yellow squash and green onions. (After my turnip-radish confusion of 2014, I’m going to capitalize RADISH from here on […]
