Shaved Radish Toasts

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Earlier in the week I reviewed the Southern Living 2021 Christmas book. This recipe is from that book. It is a super simple crostini that is perfect for the holiday season. The creamy cheese is a perfect complement to the crunchy, peppery radish slices. The beauty of this appetizer is that it can be fully prepped ahead of time, assembled just prior to serving, and is the perfect pre-dinner snack because it is both light and satisfying at the same time.

Shaved Radish Toasts

24 (1/2 ” thick) diagonally cut baguette slices
¼ c. unsalted butter, melted


Buttermilk-Herb Cream Cheese (recipe follows)
Thinly sliced radishes*

Sea salt flakes
Black pepper
Freshly chopped chives

Preheat oven to 375° F. Arrange baguette slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake until slices are just beginning to brown at the edges, about 12 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool to room temperature.

Spread 1½ t. Buttermilk-Herb Cream Cheese on each crostini.

Top with radishes, sea salt flakes, black pepper, and chopped chives.

*I used a
mandoline for this.

Buttermilk-Herb Cream Cheese

8 oz. chive and onion cream cheese, softened
6 T. whole buttermilk
2 t. lemon zest (from one lemon)
½ t. kosher salt
½ t. black pepper

Process cream cheese, buttermilk, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper in a food processor until smooth.

They look very colorful, tasty and healthy. ─░ would like try it with our Turkish cheese (we call it: salamura peynir). Have a wonderful weekend.
