Radishes

Recipe for May 27, 2007


You either love them or you don’t.  If you’ve always eaten them plain here’s an old (maybe new to you) way to enjoy radishes.

Radish Sandwich

  • 1 – 2 bunches of radishes*
  • 1 French baguette *
  • Unsalted butter
  • Sea salt (fleur de sel or Maldon sea salt)

Remove the leaves then wash and trim root ends.  Refrigerate radishes in ice water for added crispness several hours before serving.  Slice the baguette in one-inch slices.  Butter the bread.  Slice radishes, not too thin, not to thick.  Place on buttered bread.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  You can be a creative cook by adding chives, lemon or *orange zest, or parsley to the softened butter, but not all at once!

Radishes are complimented by

  • Chives
  • Lemon
  • Oranges
  • Parsley
  • Salt
  • Vinegar, especially rice wine and sherry
