Now, just take the washed radishes and spread butter and salt according to your preference. As you don't need to chop the vegetable, the preparation is minimal, but the dish is delicious. If you want to be more creative, use a food processor to mix other ingredients, such as butter, garlic, lemon juice and anchovy paste.
