Salads Schmalads… More Sandwiches Smandmiches!

A while ago I challenged myself to stop eating salads so often. So I did. I haven’t eaten a salad for a meal since lunch on August 6th. (It was a Tuna Nicoise salad from Macaron, by the way.) Salads are great, but they don’t do so well with my stomach so even though I am the salad girl, I knew I had to take a break.

So what do people eat when they aren’t eating salads?

My first guess was sandwiches. Here are some of the fun combos I have made (or bought). My favorite is at the end.

beet sandwich 500x500 Salads Schmalads... More Sandwiches Smandmiches!

This sandwich has Steamed Beets (my dad’s), Tofurky, mayo (lots), mustard (lots), and lettuce. The bread is some whole-grain oat nut thing I got at Whole Foods.

This one is a “Peking Style Zen Duck Wrap” (vegetarian) from Zen Palate. It was decent. It was much better dipped in my brother’s dish’s peanut sauce. It had fake duck, lettuce, carrots, and a spinach tortilla.

Hey… what are those doing there?! Those are sweet potato fries from Zen Palate as well.

white tuna sandwich 500x500 Salads Schmalads... More Sandwiches Smandmiches!

Lastly, my favorite, the White Tuna Sandwich from Macaron Cafe. It has avocado, cherry tomatoes, and a homemade French mayonnaise on the most delicious whole grain bread.

I really must recreate the White Tuna Sandwich at home.

I have been having other sandwiches all week but have been too lazy to take pictures. I’m sorry! Maybe next time.

What’s your favorite sandwich of all time?

Mine is most certainly the white tuna one above.

    Any sandwich with melted cheese or creamy cheese in it. I don’t have an all-time favorite sandwich because I love most sandwiches and don’t like to stick to one. There are so many great varieties out there!

    Favorite sandwich = grilled chicken, avocado, and steamed (or sauteed) spinach on whole grain.

    My favorite sandwich EVER definitely has to be bread (white, whole wheat, any kind really!) brushed with olive oil on the outsides, then topped with mozzarella cheese, dried (or fresh if it’s available) basil, and tomatoes, and then broiled in the oven for 1 minute. That sandwich was like heaven in my mouth the first time I tasted it! :-D

    Okay Maggie, I had to chuckle at the “fake duck” sandwich!

    Reuben sandwich, grilled, with extra sauerkraut is my favorite sandwich of all time!
