Creamy Radish Dip

Makes about 2 cups


1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1-2 garlic cloves, minced, optional 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce; more as needed
1⁄2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1⁄2 teaspoon celery salt

1⁄8 teaspoon paprika

Dash of hot sauce, optional 

Kosher salt to taste

1 cup finely chopped radishes

1⁄4 cup finely chopped green onions, white and light green parts only 

— Fresh vegetables and crackers, for serving 


Put the cream cheese, butter, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, celery salt, paprika, hot sauce and salt to taste into a medium bowl.

Mix with a wooden spoon until well combined (you can also use a mixer on low speed, if you like). Stir in radishes and green onions. Chill for several hours to allow the flavors to blend.

Taste and add more salt, Worcestershire sauce or hot sauce, if needed, but be careful not to let the Worcestershire sauce overwhelm the delicate flavors. Serve with fresh vegetables and crackers. 

An easy dip to make-and the radish is a bit crunchy and spicy. Pair with crostini, crackers or crudité!
