Servings 18


Step 1

Spread some butter over bread slices. Sprinkle with fleur de sel. Top each bread slice with 2 watercress sprigs.

Spread 1 side of each radish slice with butter. Place 2 radish slices atop watercress, buttered-side down, overlapping slightly if necessary to fit. Top with flowers or sprouts, if desired. (Can be made 1 hour ahead. Cover; let stand at room temperature.)

This recipe yields 18 pieces.

What to drink: Brut Champagne (or sparkling wine) sets a festive tone and can be poured throughout the meal.

Market tip: Watermelon radishes have white skins but are magenta inside; look for them at farmers' markets. Easter egg radishes (which have a purple, red, or pink skin) or regular radishes can be used.
