We love using the same ingredients in different ways in one dish. In this sourdough sandwich with radish and dill oil, we used radish in two different ways: raw and pickled. Doing so gives an exciting change in textures and keeps grocery costs low. How convenient!
Of course, we had to make this sourdough sandwich overly fancy. So we made our own dill oil. This is not a must, but it will elevate this dish to a different level of tastiness. If, however, you don’t feel like making your own dill oil, you can totally substitute it with olive oil and just add more fresh dill at the end.
For this recipe, we teamed up with asourstory, who made the amazing sourdough bread. Make sure to check out her content, she’s really talented.

- Wash the radishes and remove most of the radish green, but leave a bit on for decoration. Don’t worry; you can totally eat the green stuff. It’s actually delicious. We also kept the rooty parts because they look pretty. Just make sure you remove all the tiny hairs.
- Cut the red radish in quarters and put them in ice water until use. The ice water will keep them extra crispy.
- Cut radish into very thin slices. Add radish slices and all the other ingredients into a bowl, mix well until salt and sugar are completely dissolved. Set aside and let cool for at least 30 Minutes. The pickles are ready when the pickle juice has cooled down to room temperature.
