“This arrived in my inbox from iVillage & was the only one of a bunch that I liked so I'm transferring it here. I absolutely love the combination of scallions & radishes (see Radish & Scallion Salad). "This is no “ladies who lunch” tea sandwich topper. This is a punchy, sock-in-the-mouth spread chock-full of spicy radishes and pungent scallions. Smear it on crackers or toasted baguette slices for a zingy and quick appetizer." Tremendously easy, tons of flavor & very versatile as a dip, spread on crackers or bread or toast points, a condiment (on a burger?)...let your imagination wander. I think it would make wonderful tea sandwiches irregardless of the quote that came with the recipe. Maybe spread some into those early summer peas....”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean and trim the radish bulbs of any errant leaves or roots. Coarsely grate the radishes with a box grater or food processor disc.
  2. Wring the excess water out of the grated radishes using cheesecloth, a kitchen towel, or paper towel. (They’re more watery than you think!).
  3. Stir the radishes, scallions, softened butter, and salt together with a fork or pastry blender. Add more salt if needed.
  4. Scrape the butter into a serving dish and refrigerate for an hour to allow the butter to re-firm slightly.
