Radish Mint Tea Sandwiches - GF
When I found out that this month's Go Ahead Honey It's Gluten Free event was Garden Tea Parties I knew right away that I wanted to share this tea sandwich. It is not my recipe, and I do not know where the recipe originated, but I had to share it nonetheless.
I know it sounds strange. Radish and Mint Sandwiches?!? Let me tell you; you have never tasted anything so truly addictive. The refreshing mint and crisp radish, with just a little bite, and a fresh lemon mayonnaise.....oh man! I promise you cannot stop at just one.
Radish Mint Tea Sandwiches
Make 24 tea sandwiches
1 cup mayonnaise
1 TB freshly grated lemon zest
2 teaspoons coarse-grained mustard
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, or to taste
24 very thin slices gluten free bread (I made Bob's Red Mill bread mix, cut them into 1/2" slices and then rolled them to about 1/4" so the bread was a little more compacted)
1 cup mint leaves (from about 1 large bunch)
16 radishes, trimmed and sliced paper thin (a mandolin come in handy here)
1. In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise, zest, mustard, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
2. Spread bread generously with lemon mayonnaise. Top half of slices with a layer of mint and top mint with overlapping rows of radish. Top radish with remaining bread and press together gently (pictured open-faced for aesthetics purposes).
3. Trim crusts and cut sandwiches in half diagonally. Sandwiches may be made 2 hours ahead, wrapped in plastic wrap, and chilled.
