Watermelon Radish Canapé

I have a long time love affair with Farmers' Markets.
The amazing produce, the proud farmers, the colors, the smells, the thrill of getting items that are only available seasonally.
When I received an advanced copy of, 
it was a dream come true!

The premise is simple. 
The authors who are also best friends, would take trips to their local farmers' market and spend all day cooking.  Their focus is on  plant-based, dairy-free and gluten-free dishes but incorporate high-protein seafood and eggs.
This book is not only a treat to look at but the recipes are colorful, simple and fun.

One of the wonders of the farmers' market for me are watermelon radishes.
I love anything that is a vibrant play on words 
and it is always a joy to cut into these radishes and see the watermelon-esq colors.
Naturally, Abbie and Jacqueline's recipe for a canapé made from these gems caught my eye...

They are easy to make...

delicious to eat...

and a total show-stopper...

I'm calling this a platter of happiness...

Watermelon Radish and Smoked Salmon Canapés

Spread 1 tsp. of the cream cheese onto each radish round.  Top each round with a small piece of salmon.  Add a slice of grape tomato and a slice of carrot to each piece. sprinkle each canapé with 1/4 tsp red onion, 3-4 capers and 1/2 tsp lemon juice.
