Yummy in my tummy…

I love a good sandwich. Quick and easy to construct and the various masterpieces you can come up with are endless. It’s like a blank canvas. You are free to be as creative as you want to be.

There is a basic framework to sandwiches that needs to be followed in order to classify your creation as a sandwich, however this framework allows for various possibilities. First, you need something to encircle the goodness inside, something that will allow one to hold it (i.e. various breads or lettuce). Second, you need the filling, this is what most often defines the sandwich. Usually it is some sort of vegetable/s and often a protein. Third, you need something to hold the layers together (i.e. cheese or a delicious spread).

One of my trusty standard sandwich recipes is Chicken Tabbouleh Pita sandwiches. I usually will have this sandwich be a follow up meal for when I make a large Middle Eastern feast, but just because it’s the follow up to the feast doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be celebrated for it’s own deliciousness. I fill pitas with tabbouleh salad, baked chicken, and tasty tzatziki sauce. You’ll love the clean flavors and how light yet filling this sandwich is. Enjoy! 🙂
