Radish-Chive Tea Sandwiches w/ Sesame and Ginger

A recipe we had at our daughter's a little while back and I asked her for the recipe they were so good..And she added her own twist..

She put the mixture on Croûtons..and served them as hors-d'oeuvres.
They are truly delicious..

The recipe is from Epicurious and you can find the recipe further below..
The Fleur De Sel is optional..But I always use it..when optional:)

We had those as a light lunch today..on the small deck with the sun shining..
I served Virgin Caesar's garnished Chuck Hughes Fashion..

Freshly grated horseradish..And a Crab Claw.

MY DD is going to his very popular resto Sunday for her husband 's birthday.

It all tasted like Spring..
Thanks..I needed that.

And the recipe..

4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
3 tablespoons minced chives, divided
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
3/4 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
16 1/4-inch-thick baguette slices
10 radishes, thinly sliced


Mix butter, 2 tablespoons chives, sesame seeds, ginger, and oil in small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Spread butter mixture over each bread slice. Top with radishes, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle with remaining chives and fleur de sel, if desired.



  1. Hi Monique,
    These look so good and so easy. I'm going to try this weekend as it's supposed to be in the 90s here. I don't know what a Caesar is, so on my way to follow your link. The Virgin Caesar looks very good though. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love radish sandwiches. Those are beautiful to the eye.

  3. These would be so lovely served at tea. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Tracie..a Caesar is similar to a B mary..but instead of Tomato Juice it's Clamato juice..

    90' California girls..:)
    So pretty everywhere all the time!
    Thanks ladies..enjoy..sprinkling black sesame seeds on top looks pretty cute:) I remembered afterwards..I think that's what my daughter did when I read the reviews at Epicurious.

  5. Mmmmmm! Everything looks delicious and definitely perfect for a spring luncheon. I would love to dig into that crab claw :)

  6. oh my, this looks so wonderful!!

  7. What a lovely lunch you are going to have. Thank you for sharing.

    Enjoy your weekend

  8. J'ai la même fleur de sel dans ma cuisine, à des milliers de kilomètres de chez toi ! ;o)
