Green Pea, Avocado and Radish Sandwiches

Radishes add a peppery crunch to any sandwich.


Green Pea and Radish Sandwiches

I used to hate radishes. But in the last few years I have grown to like their peppery crunch.

Did you know you can roast radishes? And have you tried black radishes? How about instant radish pickles? Or radish leaf pesto?  So many ways to eat these roots of a mustard plant!

One of my favorite discoveries is thin radish slices on sandwiches. This bright fresh combo – avocado, green peas and radishes is my new favorite sandwich. Just a little bite of springtime bliss. I have made this at least a dozen times in the last few months. And I’m not tired of it yet.


1 cup frozen thawed peas
1 ripe Haas avocado
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
8 large radishes, thinly sliced
8 slices whole grain bread

Process in food processor the peas, avocados, lime juice, cayenne pepper sauce and salt and pepper.

Layer on bread slices the pea mixture and radishes. Cut into triangles and serve.
