Sandwich Dossier: When is a salad not a salad?

January 12, 2010

I don’t generally like salads.  In fact, my dislike of salads actually rivals my love of sandwiches in intensity.  However, there are a number of more unconventional salads (in that they’re not made up of lettuce and tomatoes) which I like, and it just so happens  that these salads can be and often are made into sandwiches.

The Egg Salad Sandwich.

These salads generally consist of a chopped meat mixed with a dressing such as mayonnaise or mustard, often including other spices or seasonings, and then served on bread like a conventional sandwich.  It’s a simple recipe, but it allows for a lot of variation, since almost every ingredient can be swapped out or added.

A Chicken Salad Sandwich (featuring a CROISSANT!!)

For example, the chicken salad in this sandwich includes walnuts, celery and grapes, giving it a lighter, sweeter taste.  The bread can also be replaced, using everything from plain bread to a hamburger bun to a croissant, as pictured.

A Tuna Salad Sandwich

As seen in the picture above, you can also garnish salad sandwiches with lettuce, tomatoes, and other ingredients the same way you might dress a deli sandwich.

The best Ham Salad Sandwich of all time, no question.

That’s about it for salad sandwiches, they’re not too difficult or expensive to prepare, and are available at many restaurants and stores.  They also taste pretty darn good as well.  Until next time, sandwich fans!!
