One of the easiest and most delicious ways to enjoy watermelon radishes is on a slice of toast with a thick layer of goat cheese. This recipe is almost not a recipe, it's just a few ingredients and truly simple.
Watermelon radishes are available in spring and fall and they're well worth it if you can get your hands on some!
Why You'll Love this Radish Toast
Radishes have a lovely, pepper kick to them, and watermelon radishes have a hint of sweetness as well. They're also ridiculously pretty!
Make this toast for weekend breakfast or brunch or as an appetizer at a relaxed dinner party. The radishes pair well with the creamy goat's cheese and topped with a little olive oil, S&P, and microgreens the flavors are really rounded out.
Ingredients You'll Need
This recipe serves one, but can be easily scaled up or down. For one serving you'll need:
- Two medium pieces of bread - I used sourdough, which I highly recommend, but any bread that toasts well and has some bulk will work.
- Watermelon Radish - You'll need one watermelon radish, sliced into 1/4 inch slices.
- Goat's Cheese - You'll need two ounces of goat's cheese. I recommend an herby blend with at least basil in it.
- Toppings - You'll need 2 teaspoons of olive oil, some flaky sea salt, a pinch of ground black pepper, and a few microgreens.

Tips for Making Watermelon Radish Toast
Specialty Ingredients - For this recipe, you'll need a watermelon radish. I've had the best luck finding them at specialty grocery stores and the farmer's market.
Storing Tips - This recipe will keep for two days in the fridge, but I recommend eating it cold (don't try to reheat in the microwave, the bread will get soggy!)
Diet/Allergy Alternatives - You can swap the goat's cheese for half an avocado if you'd like this recipe to be dairy-free or vegan.
