This post is not exactly a recipe. It’s an idea for an easy and quick appetizer; turnip sandwiches stuffed with horseradish sauce and cream cheese, garnished with peppers of 3 different colors. It is spicy, but not too much, so even those who do not like spicy foods can try it.
The horseradish sauce I used is store bought. Unfortunately I have not found a horseradish root in Greece, so I couldn’t make a homemade sauce, so far; and I really like it so much! As for the turnip, I used the one in the photo. I do not know if it has any particular name, usually all these roots, in Greece, are called turnips. If anyone knows, I would be very happy if he lets me know. I believe these sandwiches will be delicious if you use radishes, as well.
I cut the turnip slices with a cookie cutter, to be even. It’s better to make them small, they would be eaten more easily. My cookie cutter has a diameter of 4.5 cm, but the sandwiches can be made even smaller.
- 100 g. prepared horseradish sauce
- 100 g. cream cheese, low fat
- 16 thin turnip slices
- red, green and black freshly ground pepper
- In a bowl, mix cream cheese with the horseradish sauce.
- Spread some of the mixture on 8 turnip slices and cover with the other 8, to make sandwiches.
- Dip each sandwich into one kind of pepper and serve immediately.
- The sauce can be preserved in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
