Pretty Pretty Sandwiches

It’s not secret that I love a good sandwich! In fact back in the day, when I stayed out late with friends and had a cocktail (or two), I was known for my late night sandwich creations. There’s just something about the fresh ingredients that make it such a satisfying meal. In fact, you could whip these darlings up for dinner and you’d get the same satisfied, rub the tummy response!
I’m not going to pull any punches here, use the freshest ingredients! There is no sautéing or baking, so you want to ensure that all the flavors are at their peek!
