Radish and herb butter sandwiches are not just delightful to eat, they also serve as a trigger food for memories of my childhood. Today's recipe is homage to my mom, who introduced me to cultivating radishes and then making them into a scrumptious lunch. There are just too many great radish eating moments to share; suffice to say, they were all yummy!
Radish and herb butter sandwiches make an easy appetizer, and are beautiful when plated; perfect for Sunday tea with friends, or simply enjoyed for lunch. Serve with a light and fruity white wine.
I hope you enjoy these radish and herb butter sandwiches as much as I do!
