Radish Sandwiches

Radish Sandwiches

Time: 20 mins


  • 8 radishes, trimmed
  • 6 ounces cream cheese (I used low fat)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (I used Smart Beat Spread)
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, without stems
  • 1 teaspoon chives, snipped
  • fresh lemon juice
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 6 -8 slices pumpernickel bread


  • 1 For the filling, finely chop the radishes in the food processor (or hand grater). Place in a large sieve or colander. Press with paper towels to drain and squeeze out any excess liquid.
  • 2 Cream the cream cheese and butter together until fluffy (I used the food processor); add drained chopped radishes, parsley, chives, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, and cream again.
  • 3 Cut crusts from bread and cut into small squares or rounds. Spread with filling, and garnish with sliced or whole radishes coated with coarse salt.
  • 4 Chill thoroughly before serving.
