I could eat this every.single.day. sometimes I think let me make something else, something new, something exciting, but then my heart goes right back to this plate. cream cheese, cucumber, radish, green onion, arugula, salt and pepper. the arugula can stay or go, but it is a really nice touch. Everything else, combined together? it’s heaven. just right amount of crunch and freshness. my forever number one things on toast.Also, can I just give out a huge THANK YOU for all the love. Thank you friends and new visitors from ABM, I hope you like it here. You all give me an extra reason to smile 🙂


  1. I really like!
    I put some pieces of smoked salmon, cherry tomatoes, oregano and a drizzle of olive oil (and all the other things you put too :))…Delicious! mham

    A kiss from Portugal, you`ve got a lovely blog and a dear child

  2. ABM sent me here today. I love their blog and it's the only one I will read as I find most blogs don't inspire me, or aren't to my taste. I'm so glad I clicked on the link to come here though, I absolutely love it and have spent the last hour and a half reading through pages and pages of your blog posts.(whoops)But i'm already hooked. So pleased that I now have 2 favorite blogs to read through regularly! Thank you so much for having such a beautiful blog. Your home is incredibly beautiful too.(Thank you to Elsie and Emma from ABM also!)

  3. Have you tried baked radishes with some balsamic vinaigrette and sea salt?! Delicious!

    -monica, alohafrommonica.blogspot.com

    • YES! I usually sauté them, with the greens! I have two versions of it on my page! So good! 🙂

    • Tofutti cream cheese! And I will say, it was one of my harder adjustments becoming vegan—– it's not a great substitute at all.. but over time, I've grown to love it. A lot.

  4. Yum! I am always looking for more snack and lunch type foods. Edamame and pretzels with almond butter are getting a little old 🙂 LOVE radishes and don't know many ways to use them. Thank you!

    • I never eat edamame…. or pretzels with peanut butter… but both sound great right now!

  5. I'm a new visitor – it was your pier 1 chair in the living room post that caught my eye on A Beautiful Mess! I'm dying to have a chair like that in my apartment… your's was additional inspiration for sure!

    glad to have found your little blog!


  6. I just read through all your vegan posts & you have helped confirm my desires to start eating a more clean diet. & who knows..maybe one day I'll make it down the vegan path 🙂 Thanks for your honesty and ALL the information, you are dedicated to teaching! & I love that you're from south florida 🙂

    • its absolutely my favorite thing to eat for lunch. It can be as filling or as light as you want… and its super easy. win win win.

  7. I linked over here from ABM, yesterday and I've spent several non-consecutive hours just browsing through old posts. I love your photos and your vibe. I'm following you on bloglovin, now.
    Thanks for providing something bright and sunshiny for us. 🙂

  8. We have had radish in our kitchen for a few days and I have been clueless as to what to use it for! I think you just gave me an idea 🙂

  9. I'm a new visitor that found you via ABM and love it here! Such a lovely blog. Also, this combo looks amazing. Cream cheese + bread + fresh veggies is one of my favorites :).

  10. ooh i love all of the colors!! i've just gotten the feeling that i need to get to know the radish well it is too pretty not to be used in every single salad or thing on toast.

    • I only fell in love with the radish a few years ago, I highly recommend you get involved with it too 🙂
