Yield - 16

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
3 to 4 tablespoons chives, minced and divided
1 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted, plus more for garnish
3/4 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1/4 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
10 radishes, thinly sliced
1 French baguette, sliced diagonally into 16 slices
Sea salt, to taste

  • In a small bowl, combine the butter, 2 tablespoons of the chives, 1 tablespoon of the toasted sesame seeds, grated ginger, and sesame oil.
  • Spread the butter mixture over each slice of bread
  • Top each slice of bread with 2-3 radish slices.
  • Garnish with remaining sesame seeds, chives, and sea salt. ***Add the sea salt right before serving for best results.

The flavor of sesame and radishes play well together. Add in some chives and sea salt and you've got yourself a great appetizer! You'll get people who think they don't like radishes...until they try this! We've converted many radish skeptics and are sure you will too. The Radish Skeptic Converting Magic happens partly thanks to the salt. When you add the sea salt just before you serve the toasts, it helps to tone down the heat that turns some people off.
