No-Bread Sandwich (Pret-A-Manger)

I just got back from a trip to London today and we went into this cafe we were recommended called Pret-A-Manger, we were recommended this particular "sandwich". I fell in love with it. I noticed as I was about to throw away the bag that the recipe was on it, so I decided to share with you what I enjoyed so much. All of their products are organic, hand picked and fresh every day. This is one version of the sandwiches.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. French Dressing:.
  2. Mix ingredients in a bowl add a pinch of black pepper (it's nice to do this an hour or two before using to allow flavour to develop).
  3. Lay avocado slices in a shallow dish or plate (they use a 15cm sq dish to keep ingredients in neat layers, just like a sandwich but without bread).
  4. Scatter salad leaf mix into dish.
  5. Lay cucumber neatly over one half of the salad leaves.
  6. Arrange crayfish over other half.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Pop the three basil leaves on top of the cucumber.
  9. Drizzle the dressing over your no-bread sandwich and enjoy.

Have eaten this plenty for lunch at Pret, a very popular chain in London. The key is to get great ingredients. Despite not having any bread, this sandwich is surprisingly filling.

the french dressing is the best bit, and can be used on many other salads, it keeps well in the fridge as well
