Radish Tea Sandwich

I love radishes, and these little gem’s just became available at the Holland Farmer’s Market here in Michigan. I really like to just eat them raw with a little bit of sea salt. I came up with this recipe yesterday when I was thinking about my Mother. She use to eat radish sandwiches when she was a little girl, I always thought that was disgusting! She would just have them on white bread and that was it. She also use to eat Baked bean sandwiches, which I don’t think I will ever try! These little sandwiches start out with my Artisan Bread recipe and then I use a biscuit cutter that is about 1-inch in diameter, just cutting the whites out. You can also just use white bread from the grocery store. When we arrived in Macatawa last week, I was thrilled to see some of the herbs I planted last year had resurfaced, Italian Parsley and tarragon. So I mixed some mayo with fresh tarragon and sea salt and pepper. I used the Italian parsley for garnish. These little Radish Tea Sandwiches are perfect for a potluck dinner, appetizer, lunch or just a summer afternoon snack with tea or beer, whatever floats your boat! They are very addicting, and for those of you that don’t like radishes, like my husband Pete, I promise you will become a convert! Pete loved them! Let me know what you think of these little gems, leave me a comment and let me know how you eat your radishes?
