    MarieRynr's Note:

    So simple, and yet so many subtle differences transform "good" to "world's best." the way a sandwich is assembled is key to how good it tastes. A gread sandwich is never dry (too bready). I pull out and discard all the soft white centers from baguettes, leaving two cano-shaped halves. This hollowed out bread is then packed full and doused with a generous splash of "house" dressing. Closing one of these sandwiches is like shutting an overpacked suitcase!

      No complaints here, the only thing I did different was added avocado. Will make again and again!

      I have a very picky husby, and he doesn't care for "new" takes on old recipes. I snuck this on his plate though and he LOVED it!!
      Thank you for the great spin on a classic.

      This was delicious. There's something about the savory-ness of the mayo combo with the tangy sweetness of the house sauce, that's just ooh-la-la! I didn't have a baguette so I used toasted sourdough bread. I bought a store bought pesto "sauce/spread" that didn't have pine nuts in it, so it wasn't the traditional pesto, it did have basil as it's first ingredient and large chunks of garlic, it was very tasty mixed in the mayo. It's worth the time and effort and one day soon, I'll buy the baguettes and have some folks over for brunch and serve them...YUM!!
