Radish Sandwich with Butter and Sea Salt



Radishes are one of my husband’s favorite foods. He loves to stand at the counter dipping them in salt and popping them into his mouth. Crunch. Crunch. Crunch.

I’d never eaten radishes that way before meeting him. I wasn’t even a fan of radishes before meeting him. But now I do that salt-dip thing right by his side. It’s that amazing combo of radishes and salt that inspired this sandwich.

Let me tell you, I thought I was being très originale by “inventing” this little sandwich. But it turns out that it’s a French thing and variations of it have appeared all over the place, even in Saveur Magazine.

The fact that I wasn’t the first to come up with it doesn’t make it a bad sandwich though. Non! Non! Non! Pas de tout! If multiple people are slapping butter on bread and adding salted radishes, you simply need to try it too. C’est très délicieux. Je vous promets!

Radish Sandwich


  • 2 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 4 tsp. salted butter, softened
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 4 big pinches coarse sea salt (I use Maldon salt)


  1. Place the bread on a plate. Divide butter between slices and spread to coat. Lay the radishes in a single slightly overlapping layer on the slices of buttered bread. Sprinkle radishes with sea salt.
