Radish and Butter Baguettes


Radishes are one of the first crops in the Spring, and one of the last in the Fall.

This recipe is a spin-off of the classic French way to enjoy radishes.

I love to serve these with fresh salad greens, such as arugula from Good Life Farms.

Radish and Butter Baguettes


  • 1 standard-size baguette
  • 4-6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¼ C fresh garden herbs such as chives or tarragon
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt
  • 2 bunches radishes, trimmed, washed, and thinly sliced
  • 1 small handful arugula
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cut baguette into fourths, crosswise, then cut segments in half.
  2. Mix soft butter with herbs and lemon zest, season with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread each piece with approximately ½ Tablespoon of butter.
  4. Top with radish slices.
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  6. Garnish with arugula.
