These open-faced sandwiches, or tartines, are a great way to serve the quintessential Gallic flavor combo of butter and radishes. You can use firm, fresh radishes of any variety, such as round red radishes or Easter Egg radishes. Use a good rustic loaf or a freshly baked baguette. Let guests make their own, offering sweet butter or the following savory olive butter.

How to Make It

Place butter, olives, parsley, thyme, and red pepper in a small bowl; mash with a spoon to combine. Spread butter mixture evenly over bread slices; top with radish slices. Sprinkle with sea salt. Serve immediately.

Not impressed

I made this with a good baguette, radishes from the farmer's market, Vermont Creamery butter, fleur de sel, and oil cured olives. It was still just ok. Looking back at the photos, maybe I skimped a little on the butter, but prob wouldn't make again.
