~German Radish Sammy~
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.
