Summer = radishes

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Recipes and Food

Or more precisely:

Summer = two slices of seedy walnut bread delicately smeared with soft butter and decorated with two thinly sliced fresh radishes and a healthy sprinkle of sea salt.


radishes = summer

That is one of my favourite sandwiches too – except I like them tiny and crustless. I eat the same amount, just by lots of small things.

as you might already know i am not a sandwich person but i think i might like these. do you like your radishes hot and spicey or mild? i always wondered how to pick them so that i don’t end up with the crazy hot ones like i so often do!

I would have never thought of eating a radish sandwich. And yet I eat cucumber sandwiches…but with cream cheese. Maybe radish and cream cheese? I’ll try it your way first. Thanks for the tip.

Marla: I like your strategy. :)

Betsy Mae: You never know what you’re going to get in terms of heat, do you? I think it has to do with how the radishes were grown. I do find that the salt cuts the heat.

Binki: I might try radishes and cream cheese! I love cucumber sandwiches too. Yum.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
