Salad Sandwich

Good bread, lots of vegies and time to make a salad sandwich! Luxury! Just what I needed on a warm summer’s day!

I’d been to Fatto a Mano (Gertrude Street, Fitzroy) and bought a loaf of their fine pumpkin and cumin bread. I’d had a yen to buy fresh beetroot at the supermarket – which always takes me back to my days making salad rolls as a volunteer at the university food co-op.

This salad sandwich is different to my standard one with cheese. I meant to include cheese but forgot and it really didn’t matter. This sandwich had plenty of taste and texture - peanut butter, shredded baby spinach, sliced tomato, grated carrot, grated beetroot, mung bean sprouts, freshly ground black pepper and avocado.

I want to recommend you try this fantastic combination, but the joy of salad sandwiches is fossicking in the crisper of the fridge and letting inspiration lead you. So instead I wish you the weather and whim to make salad sandwiches!

  2. I totally agree with your sandwich philosophy - namely, trying a new combination of whatever looks good at the moment! I think pumpkin and cumin bread definitely fits that bill nicely :)

  6. Thanks Kristy - I confess to being a big fan of peanut butter - but the Melb Uni food co-op used to do peanut butter in their salad rolls which I loved - not sure if they still do

    Thanks AForkful - I love a full salad sandwich - but it never looks pretty eating it :-)

  7. This is the second recipe I've read for PB and veggies in a sandwich--I think I must be missing something!

  8. I love this approach to making sandwiches too! Yours sounds *really* good, with a lovely range of crunches and flavours. I can see why you didn't miss the cheese!

  9. Thanks Ricki - peanut butter is one of those things that comes and goes in popularity in our house and is the thing of the moment!

    Thanks Lysy - I do like cheese in salad sandwiches but it is good to have a change
