~German Radish Sammy~

Childhood memory:

When I was in second and third grade I took private, after-school lessons to learn the German language. My teacher, Zantha, would always start our sessions with this after-school snack and a big mug of tea. This is still one of my favorite sandwiches! She would top crusty white bread or pumpernickel rye with a healthy layer of cream cheese, thick-sliced radishes, coarse salt and fresh-ground pepper. So simple and perfect. A yummy, healthy treat to enjoy for lunch or as a part of your afternoon tea ritual.

    I never knew these were German, but I’ve loved these sandwiches from a kid too!! My dad always made them for me and they were a favorite snack of mine too!! I love buying radishes at the farmers market for these great summer sandwiches!

    They really are a little bit of summer in the fridge…even in the middle of winter! 🙂

    A radish I will eat every now and then, but in a sandwich I will have to think again…

    YES! These are slightly different than the one I make using the Ranch dressing dip spread, but they sound just as wonderful. Love these little sandwiches on hot summer days – bet they’d be good with chive cream cheese, too!! Thank you for sharing your link to these!

      Hi Sally! I like the idea of using ranch dip on radish sandwiches! Maybe I’ll give that a try next time 🙂 Thanks for visiting! XO ~M
