No-sweat Cooking, Day 13

Prosciutto-Radish Sandwiches

31 dishes, 31 days – I’m cooking my way through Melissa Clark‘s “No-Sweat Cooking” from the August issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray. And to those of you who made your way over here via, welcome!

I’ve been a fan of the combo of radishes, butter, and salt since I first tried them together at at NYC’s Prune forever ago, so this sandwich seemed like a sure thing. The sandwich is also just about the easiest thing in the world to put together, so it seemed to be a good way to get back on the No-sweat Cooking wagon after losing a weekend to illness (mine and our Kali girl’s) and a few pressing projects.

prosciutto, butter, radishes

As with any dish that contains so few ingredients, quality is super important. I started with a great fresh baguette from Seven Stars Bakery, sweet and porky La Quercia Prosciutto Americano from Farmstead, farm fresh radishes, softened Kate’s butter and good coarse sea salt. The peppery snap of the radishes was really nice against the silky prosciutto – as Mike said, “this one’s a keeper,” and I expect we’ll be enjoying these Prosciutto-Radish Sandwiches often.

  1. Oh these look lovely, I don’t know why that I never thought to do this since I often drape prosciutto or similar over buttered bread, and do the same with radishes. Rats! Next time we pick up some radishes I know their fate.

    More importantly I hope you and Kali are doing better! I didn’t realize she was having more issues. Poor baby.

  2. oh man, Ive been eating radishes with Kates butter and salt since you first posted them on here this summer, and now I eat it for lunch at least once a week, with added prosciutto I am doomed.
