Healthy food continues. What the hell has happened to me?!

I omitted the whole 'arrange the radishes on a bed of sea salt' ridiculousness and just sliced them up and added them to the sandwich. It has a nice onion flavor to it, so if you are adverse to a lot of onion flavor, you might want to omit the radish and add some London broil on top. Pretty tasty either way, I must say.

Radishes with Herb Butter & Salt
Serves 6-8

2 bunches radishes with the tops intact
Sea salt
Good salted butter or Herbed Butter, recipe follows
1 French baguette, sliced diagonally, and lightly toasted

Arrange the radishes on a bed of sea salt. Spread the butter on slices of toasted bread and arrange artfully on a platter. Serve at room temperature.

Herbed Butter:
1/4 pound unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons minced scallions
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh dill
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley leaves
1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper

Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on low speed until combined. Do not whip. Recipe from Ina Garten
