Well, it sure has been a while. Many, many months without posting a recipe. Believe me, I've been cooking. And mothering. And cleaning. And on-the-side marketing. And fitness instructing. And now incubating (baby #3). So let's start back with something really easy.
The Aussie Style Salad Sandwich. These are commonplace in Australia - they are found in every bakery or cafe that offers lunch. When we last visited, these were my favorite lunchtime meal. Piled high, you choose what to put on them. And, I make them for my husband all the time. So healthy and filling!
I'm going to give you our preference for how to build this sandwich, but it's completely up to you. You can substitute like crazy for this one.
Aussie Style Salad Sandwich
Condiments: spreadable butter, tarragon mustard (found at Hy-Vee) or Mayo
Meat: Ham, turkey or sliced chicken breast
Cheese: extra sharp cheddar (Cabots is our favorite)
Fillings: Carrots (shredded on cheese grater), cucumbers thinly sliced, tomotoes thinly sliced, lettuce or spinach leaves, sprouts of any kind (my hubby sometimes adds sliced red onion and beets if we have them)
Salt & Pepper
1. Spread butter on one half of the sandwich, and mustard or mayo on the other half.
2. Pile sandwich high with all the ingredients. Add a good seasoning of salt and pepper over the carrots.
3. Eat and enjoy!
