A Dressed Up Lettuce Sandwich

September 7, 2012

Author Notes:

Have you ever made yourself a lettuce sandwich.....lettuce and mayo or butter sandwiched between two pieces of bread? Sort of bland but supposedly great if you suffer from insomnia and eaten about a half hour before bed, or so they say. I like them but to add a little pizzazz I make them with a pimiento cheese mayo.


Makes: almost as many sandwiches as you like


Pimiento cheese mayo

  • 8 ounces medium cheddar very finely grated
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 4 ounces jar diced pimientos, liquid included
  • 1 tablespoon prepared white horseradish
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

For each sandwich

  • 2 slices sandwich bread of your choice, toasted or not
  • About 1 cup shredded sturdy lettuce such as romaine or iceberg
  • A few spoonfuls of the Pimiento cheese mayo
