Radishes with Chive Cream Cheese


  • 8 medium radishes
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh chives


serves: 2
yields: 8
total: 45 min
dish: appetizer
season: spring, fall

Trim root ends of radishes so radishes will stand upright and cut 1/4 inch from stem ends. With a small melon-ball cutter scoop out center of each radish, leaving a 1/3-inch-thick shell.

In a small bowl whisk together cream cheese, lemon juice, chives, and salt and pepper to taste. With a small knife fill radishes with cream cheese mixture.
