A Sandwich Where Scattered Ingredients Find a Home


A Sandwich Where Scattered Ingredients Find a Home

December 10, 2015

I overdid it on the smoked ham lately so my kids have been demanding change. After a spate of turkey, I thought it would be safe to dip my toe back into ham, this time rosemary ham. The remaining contents of my fridge were like logs at sea, adrift and scattered. So I gave them all a home in this sandwich: feta, arugula, and a cilantro sauce, paired with the ham. A little odd, maybe, but my kids liked it as much as they did the satsumas (and foliage) and yogurt for dessert.
