Looking for a healthy sandwich that still packs the crunch of something fried? Try loading up your next sandwich with radishes!

Radishes are a great addition to any dish, as they are high in Vitamin C and can aid in digestion.  So when I received a big bundle of radishes in my CSA box this week from Johnson’s Backyard Garden, I was ecstatic!

You can find sliced radishes on many salad bars, but think beyond that! Sandwiches can really benefit from the spicy crunch of radishes. By avoiding bacon, or crispy onions, you can save both fat and calories, but still get that crunch with healthy veggies. So next time you stack up your favorite sandwich, try adding some thinly sliced radishes! Here is how I crisped up my favorite one! J
