this is one of my favorite summer snacks: a simple radish toast. requiring only a handful of ingredients, this snack is undeniably good, and always a crowd pleaser. i’ve introduced this to a lot of friends, and they’re always hesitant until they take that first bite… then they’re hooked for life.
start with a fresh loaf of bread. we always use bavarian rye, and you’ll want to ensure it’s fresh otherwise it’ll be tough to bite through. you’ll also need some irish butter, flake sea salt, and radishes of your choosing. we personally prefer the standard red or french breakfast varieties. the irish butter is so rich and creamy that it adds a nice contrast to those little crunchy radishes. seriously, you can’t go wrong with this recipe people.
simple radish toast recipe
2 slices rye bread
unsalted pure irish butter, room temperature
flake sea salt
2-3 radishes, thinly sliced
start with two nice thick slices of rye and lather them up with the irish butter. then sprinkle a little bit of flake sea salt over the top of it all. a pinch or two should do nicely. layer as many radish slices on top as you’d like – i’d recommend at least one radish’s worth of slices per piece of bread. once assembled, pour a glass of your favorite rosé and enjoy.
