Herb Butter Spread Recipe

Restaurant Butter Recipe

This recipe for Herb Butter Spread was one I ran across some time ago when I purchased a carton of Organic Valley Butter, a product I always use.

Inside the carton I found this recipe and decided it looked good enough to put to the ultimate test.

I made the recipe and used it with some sautéed vegetables one evening. The restaurant guests loved it.

The next few nights the restaurant used it on a salmon special and a chicken special. Both received rave reviews!

The recipe is now a real restaurant recipe so I thought you'd enjoy it, too.

Did you know? Culinary endeavors distinguish herbs from spices. Herbs refer to the leafy green parts of a plant (either fresh or dried), while a "spice" is a product from another part of the plant (usually dried), including seeds, berries, bark, roots and fruits.
