May 30th, 2009 / Comments 5

The farmer’s market was full of shoppers, seedlings, flowers, cookies and even some vegetables.

The multicolored radishes from Kevin & Laura Channell of Your Farm in Fairlee, Vermont were irresistable. I’ve known about radish sandwiches for years, today was the day to try one.

This classic French sandwich is usually made with a baguette, unsalted butter and sliced radishes. I decided to use thinly sliced walnut sage bread from Umpleby’s. (Rosie can’t figure out why the bread board is on the grass in the garden. Luckily, she has the self control required of a food blogger’s dog.)

Back to the assembly details – after slicing the bread and radishes, I buttered the bread generously with unsalted, homemade butter, see Butter in the Kitchen post, arranged the radishes on top and enjoyed a delicate, delicious lunch in the garden with Rosie.

She enjoyed the crusty heel of the loaf of bread.

    Dear Carol!
    Good work!
    As for radishes, the French just incise them, put some butter onthem and eat them with their fingers!
