Zesty Radish and Chive Sandwich

Radishes are fresh, crisp and peppery tasting. Not everyone loves them; but if you do, here’s a treat you’ll want to try.


  • 3 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup of softened cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of chives, finely chopped
  • 6 slices of rye bread (or your favorite bread)
  • Salad cress, optional
  • Lemon juice


Mix together the softened cream cheese, 2/3 of your chives and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Slice your bread, top with the cream cheese mixture, then with the radishes. Sprinkle the remaining chives as a garnish. You can also add salad cress as a garnish. Serve open-faced or top with another slice of bread for a full sandwich.


If you’re making ahead of time, cover with a slightly damp tea towel until you’re ready to serve.

Not a cream cheese fan? You could opt for a butter spread with some herbs, lemon zest and lemon juice.

You can also replace the chives with dill.

Add cucumbers for more filler.
