Radish sandwiches

This makes a really great snack or appetizer if you happen to have some radishes on hand, or they are available at your supermarket. It's really simple and very tasty. Think of it as kind of an autumn version of cucumber sandwiches :)

Ingredients:

  • 1 baguette
  • 1 bunch radishes
  • butter
  • large grain sea salt

Instructions:
  1. Cut the baguette into thin slices, about 1/2 inch thick.
  2. Butter each slice.
  3. Thinly slice the radishes and arrange the slices on top of the bread slices.
  4. Lightly sprinkle the slices with sea salt to taste. If you used salted butter, you may not need extra, just try it and adjust to your liking.

And what a colourful and pretty (and yummy) plate it'd make if you'd mix those with cucumber sandwiches :)

I've been making a lot of sandwiches with radish and salt after this post! Not ideal for scandinavian dark bread but great on all whiter ones.

Oooh, for the dark bread, you need some tomatoes and rub salt and garlic on the bread.

In Lithuania, they cut dark rye bread into strips, and fry it just so it's crispy on the outside, then rub garlic and salt on it, and dip it in mayonnaise :) Not very healthy, but very very tasty :)
