Radish and Cucumber Bruchetta

OK I know promoting radishes is a tough sell to just about any kid. I like the crispy texture of them. What I love about this recipe is when you sauté radishes they turn a bit sweeter and I like that. Combining the sauté with the cucumbers provides an additional smooth flavor. Served on lemony toast is an incredible taste experience.

Ingredients

Olive oil 4 Tablespoon , divided
Radishes 8 Large , sliced (or 16 medium to small)
Seedless cucumber 1/2 , sliced in half moon rounds
Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm) , sliced (Optional)
Salt and pepper To Taste

Fresh lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
Parsley 2 Tablespoon , chopped

Place French bread slices on baking pan and brush with olive oil – lemon mixture.

Sprinkle the fresh parsley on the bread. Broil bread in oven until golden and crispy.
