Radish butter spread is the perfect spread for Spring. When Easter rolls around, I know that this radish butter recipe will be the beginning of a wonderful day.
Easter is the beginning of Spring and warm weather. For me, that means the beginning of some of my favorite fruits and vegetables. Radishes are one of them.
While growing up in England, we often had radishes dipped in butter and then sprinkled with sea salt. There is something special about the combination of the heat from the radishes and the sweet butter. Both of those flavors set off by the salt. Yum.
Not being sure if my family and friends would be excited about dipping a whole radish in a bowl of butter, I decided to make this radish butter spread.
This spread will make your mouth sing! You will know it is spring when you take a bite of this spread. Not sure what to spread your radish butter on?
RADISH BUTTER SPREAD
Where to use your radish butter spread:
- On Crostini
- On Endive
- On Crackers
- On Rye Toast
- On bread with a slice of cheese (my favorite way)
There are many salts you can top your spread with. I love using Himalayan Pink salt and sea salt flakes. You can usually find them in your local grocery store, but you can also find them on Amazon where I am an affiliate.
Radishes are so good for you too. Did you know that they are cooling to your body? What better reason to grab one and pop it in your mouth? They are also super low in calories. So, if you are watching what you eat, radishes should be on your list of clean eating snack.

Place the radishes in a double layer of paper towels and press out any excess liquid
Mix the grated radishes with the softened butter.
Refrigerate for about an hour and then enjoy.
