It's tres French to pair crisp, spicy radishes with softened, salted butter; a thin-sliced baguette is the perfect vehicle. This recipe first ran with the Saveur.com story Perfect Pairs: Two-Ingredient Sandwiches »
- 2 tsp. unsalted cultured butter, like Plugra
- 1⁄4 tsp. sea salt
- 2 slices baguette, cut on the bias
- 2 large radishes, sliced into 1/8" rounds
- Fresh ground black pepper
In a small bowl, blend together butter and salt using a small spatula until butter is soft and airy. Spread baguette slices with butter, arrange radish slices on top, and finish with a grind or two of pepper.
