- One mini loaf fresh bakery wheat bread
- 1 tomato
- 1 avocado
- 4 ounces spinach
- 4 ounces alfalfa sprouts
- 1 yellow mini bell pepper
- 1 red mini bell pepper
- 1 orange mini bell pepper
- 2 slices aged Swiss cheese
- 2 slices Vermont sharp cheddar cheese
- ½ pound thin sliced deli low-sodium roast beef
- ½ pound thin sliced deli low-sodium turkey breast
- ¼ cup organic mother’s apple cider vinegar
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1/8 cup red wine vinegar
- White pepper
- Himalayan sea salt
Take your mini wheat bread and cut it into two separate sections. Then take them and cut them each and half horizontally. Remove the excess bread dough from the interior of the loaves leaving a cavity. Wash all your vegetables thoroughly. Cut your tomato into slices appropriate for sandwich consumption. Peel and slice avocado into sections conforming to the parameters of the bread. Slice your mini bell peppers creating small circular portions. On the two top sections of bread, place your desired amount of thinly sliced avocado. Then add one slice each of Swiss and Vermont sharp cheddar cheese. Add your desired amount of vegetables which will include about the alfalfa sprouts, mini bell peppers and tomato.
Two the bottom sections of bread, spread a thin layer of spinach. Add your desired amount of roast beef and turkey breast. Be sure to put a layer of turkey breast and then a layer of roast beef in sequence. Do not pile in amount of turkey, and then pile on an amount of roast beef. Stagger the two. Mix the organic mother’s apple cider vinegar together with the olive oil and the red wine vinegar. Pour a small amount on the inner upper sections of the bread loaves then place the upper and lower sections together into a sandwich. Use the remainder of your vinegar and oil mixture to either dip the section of sandwich that you want to consume prior to eating as sort of an au jeux sauce. Or you can port over the top prior taking each bite.
Go make yourself a sammie!
