I began the spectacular salad sandwich journey by gathering the necessary ingredients.
After gathering came rinsing, slicing, and shredding. The crispy lettuce was rinsed and patted down, the cucumber, onion, and tomato was thinly sliced, and the carrot was shredded. I decided, before embarking on this sandwich adventure, to have all of the toppings ready to go for assembly. I wanted the real sandwich deli effect here, folks!
The recipe called for "slices of great bread." In this house, we go for the greatest: Dave's Killer Bread! This bread seriously rocks. It is organic, vegan, and comes with an inspiring message. A thin layer of mayonnaise went on the bread, followed by some salt and pepper, the veggies, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette. I accidentally forgot to put the lettuce on the sandwich, so I improvised and put it under the bread. Truly a salad sandwich!
I served the salad sandwiches with some extra slices of cucumber and some delicious tots (so much for the calories and fat slashed from cheese!). Here are a few rare photos of myself enjoying my sandwich. I don't like to slather my face all over this blog, but this sandwich was so out of this world delicious, that after my first bite, I knew the goodness needed to be documented!
Thanks for reading!
