This Radish Tea Sandwich Recipe Makes a Simple Appetizer!

Last Updated on December 18, 2020 by Diane Hoffmaster

Every year, I try to grow radishes in my garden with little success.  I honestly have no idea what I am doing wrong.  I get a few smallish sized radishes but not enough to really make my gardening efforts worth while.  In order to feed my love of radishes I have to rely on farmers markets and grocery stores.  Thankfully, there are farmers much more talented than I who know how to grow radishes!

I love radishes…they come in so many pretty colors and are much more versatile than you would think.  Sure, we use most of them in our salads but a simple radish tea sandwich makes a quick and tasty appetizer as well.

Easy Radish Recipe

In order to make a radish tea sandwich all you need is some sort of bite size bread, a bold and flavorful cream cheese spread and some fresh herbs.  I chose to use a loaf of French bread that I had laying around the kitchen.  You could buy bread rounds already cut out and ready to go at your local bakery…even the major grocery stores sell French bread slices that make a perfect radish tea sandwich.  You could also cut out bread with a 1 inch round cookie cutter if you have one or a shot glass.

Tarragon Recipes

For the herbs, you can choose whatever flavor you think would be perfect for your own radish tea sandwich.  I have got fresh tarragon growing in the backyard and honestly there is so much of it I have no idea what to do with it all.  I mixed it into the cream cheese along with the salt and peeper and used fresh chives as an additional flavor sprinkled on at the very end.  All in all, I was very impressed with how my first attempt at a radish tea sandwich came out.  Makes an easy appetizer recipe if you are short on time….just mix the cream cheese and herbs ahead of time and assemble at the last minute.  Just make sure it is at room temperature so it is soft enough to spread on the bread.  I used a fancy frosting bag and tip for a pretty picture but just spreading it on with a knife would work fine, too!
