Wow! This sandwich brought back some childhood memories from the late 50s! Same recipe with the exception, my mom added dates. Sometimes she would sub cream cheese for mayo. Hmm__MM!
DH and I recently had this for lunch and I am making it again today. Today I will bump up the green olives and since I am out of pimentos, I'll throw in 1/2 a red pepper, raw. Awesome wonderful goodness! Thanks Sharon123! Another great recipe! UPDATE: After making this several times, I thought I'd mention that now I add about 1/4 cup nutritional yeast and 2-3 Medjool dates. We love it!
There is so many tastes and textures going on in this sandwich that there is no way you can miss meat. The only difference that I made was to skip that garlic because my olives were marinated in garlic and therefore carried that flavour already. I used fat free mayo which keeps all the fat in this the good kind. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
I loved this sandwich and I really don't know why people think that non meat foods are boring. The flavors in this just pop. I used pecans and dried basil with low fat, cholesterol free mayo. Be sure to use freshly grated carrot and not the stuff from the market that turns white in your fridge. The carrot lends the sweetness that offsets the other ingredients. One sandwich will really fill you up too! Made for Santa's Secret in Photo Tag.
This makes a TRULY DELICIOUS sandwich! It's easy to throw together and has such wonderful flavors. A *definite* keeper. Also very forgiving. I don't like olives, and I didn't have pimientos or any red pepper... so for a bit of "redness" I added a spoonful of tomato sauce! Strangely enough it tasted great. I also used vegan mayonnaise, fresh basil, and accidentally toasted the bread when defreosting it, however it was all wonderful. Thank you for posting!
