Radish Cream Cheese Spread


1 bunch radishes, washed and finely cubed (about 3/4 cup)

1/4 tsp. Kosher salt

8 oz. cream cheese, softened (can use 1/3 less fat cream cheese)

1/4 cup plain (2%) yogurt 

2 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped

Zest from 1 lemon

1 tsp. lemon juice

1/4 tsp. Kosher salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Micro Greens

Sliced Bread


Place your washed and cubed radishes in a small bowl. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt and let sit for about 20 minutes to draw out excess moisture.

In a medium bowl whisk together cream cheese, yogurt, chives, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Drain salted radishes well and fold into the prepared cream cheese mixture. Place mixture in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before assembling.

When ready to serve place a dollop of the radish cream cheese on your bread slices. Top with micro greens and serve.

Yield: about 1 1/2 cups
