This week we got our second bunch of radishes in our CSA box. The first bunch made a great Thai salad & I figured this bunch would most likely also go the salad route. Then I was reading Eating Out Loud the other day & he made a Spicy Radish Sandwich which inspired me to make one of my own.
Where he went a little South Asian with his sandwich flavoring it with garam masala, I took mine on a more Eastern European path.
I toasted some slices of my homemade buttermilk bread then added some light sour cream. I sprinkled a generous amount dill on top of the sour cream. Then I thinly sliced my radishes length-wise & added a layer of those with a pinch of salt. Finally I added a layer of spring salad greens.
Yum, this was such a crisp, flavorful lunch. I love the flavor of the sour cream & dill with the slightly spicy radishes. There is one thing that would have made this sandwich perfect, a really good dark Russian or Latvian bread. I have plenty of radishes left so maybe next time.
