As a lover of rye bread, especially dark rye, when I came across this German cucumber radish sandwich, I had to have it. I love cucumber sandwiches, anyway, and the addition of radishes seemed perfect. As I read through the various recipes, though, I found that usually the bread (rye or wheat) is spread with butter and then *also* spread with cream cheese! Uhhhhhh . . . no.
I had been playing around with vegan mayo and ranch dressing seasoning mix, making a sandwich spread and salad dressing. I tried the sandwich spread on this and it was so good! The sandwich flavors are very refreshing anyway, but the addition of Ranch Sandwich Spread was perfection. You wouldn’t think a sandwich could be so satisfying, but the flavors blend so well together on this one. This sandwich makes a great quick and easy lunch or dinner, and an unexpected addition to your Oktoberfest menu.
You could add very thinly cut onions to this sandwich; lettuce and sprouts would also make nice additions. Small versions of these would make great appetizers!
The most important thing (for me) is to always use rye bread. It’s a must!
