It's hot out there! Leave the oven off and join us for No Cook Month. All August we're keeping it cool with recipes and entertaining tips without all that sweaty baking.

Who wants to cook this time of year—especially when it comes to something as simple as a sandwich?

Not us. So we took some inspiration from the Danes. They love their open-faced sandwiches as much as we do, and one of our favorites requires no heat at all. It pairs smoked salmon with crisp, shaved radishes, lemon zest and black pepper atop rye bread. A spoonful of herby sour cream ties it all together for a cool, delicious afternoon snack.
