My grandmother was a fan of radish and butter sandwiches. I only recently learned this fact from my mom after I had suggested that she serve radishes with softened butter at a French-themed dinner party she was planning. My idea triggered this memory of her mother. I had never tried a radish sandwich and thought the appropriate time was around Mother's Day. Mom, I am sure this above open-faced one differs from your mother's, but I did find the combination delicious! I spread softened butter on crusty bread and topped it with sliced radishes and coarse sea salt.
Share your mother or grandmother's favorite dishes with me—I'd love to read them.
