Tartine au Fromage Blanc

Philippe, Tucson CSA

This is a very traditional Belgian summer snack made with radishes, green onions and fromage blanc. Fromage blanc (fresh white cheese) is unique to Belgium and to the north of France and is unfortunately not easily available here. Luckily, Greek yogurt is a close substitute.  Cream cheese can also be used.

It tastes a lot better than it sounds. It is a tasty and refreshing snack or light meal to be served on a warm day accompanied by a flavorful beer.

Green onions
Greek yogurt
Salt and Pepper

Spread a generous layer of Greek yogurt on a slice of bread.
Slice radishes and green onions on top of it until the yogurt is well covered. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
You can also mix all the ingredients together and use it as a spread or dip.

    Thanks for the info: I am in the mood for a taste of home! I have produced a form of fromage blanc by straining kefir: it is good, but the taste isn’t quite the same. I shall try to find Greek yogurt.
