Paleo Radishes with Herbed Butter

I went to the farmer's market this weekend and found some awesome looking radishes, and in turn had a flash of memory where someone told me to eat them with herbs and butter.  No idea who said this to me, or where I read it (maybe I was having some sort of divine inspiration?), but in any case, this is the perfect way to eat a radish.  Sometimes simple is the best.  

These crunchers were a spicy bunch, but the combo of the cool butter, herbs and a touch of salt made this simple dish kind of complex in your mouth. We ate these as an hors d'oeuvre, but they'd make a great little snack as well.

1 large bunch radishes
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tsp fresh tarragon , chopped
1 tsp fresh oregano, chopped
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
Good sea salt

Trim off the greens from the radishes and scrub well.  Cut them in 1/2 and arrange on a plate.  Mix the herbs and the butter, and put a tiny dollop on each radish.  Sprinkle with sea salt and serve them up!
