Gruyere, Radish, and Butter Sandwich

Radishes, salt, and butter are a traditional combination.  Sprinkle on a bit of sea salt to heighten the flavor.  With this sandwich I added Gruyere cheese to add a nice salty, complex savory flavor.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Serves: 2 Sandwiches

Ingredients

6+ small radishes, divided (3-4 thinly sliced)

2-4 slices Gruyere cheese

4 slices of white bread, preferably homemade

Softened, unsalted butter

Fine sea salt, optional (just a tiny pinch)

Process

Slice the Gruyere cheese.

Lightly spread the softened butter on one side of each bread slice.

Place a single layer of the sliced Gruyere cheese on top of two slices of bread.

Place a single layer of thinly sliced radishes on top of the Gruyere, on each of the two slices of bread.

Sprinkle the radishes with fine sea salt.  Just a bit, since the cheese is a bit salty.

Top each bread-Gruyere-radish tower with the other slice of bread.

Cut in half and serve with extra radishes on the side, sprinkled with sea salt.
