The Talk Boss Does a Green Goddess Sandwich [Final Summer Recipe Series]
As summer is coming to an end, I wanted to give you all one last scrumptious summer recipe! With my Pinterest twists so popular, I thought I’d do one last #TalkBoss revamp! I found this great Green Goddess sandwich, and with my twist, it really is a goddess dream! As always, I had to add my signature Talk Boss spice…
First, assemble the ingredients below:
1/3 cup packed basil leaves
1/3 cup packed tarragon leaves
1/3 cup packed chopped chives
2 medium-large garlic cloves
2 anchovy fillets
zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup good mayonnaise (such as Spectrum’s olive oil mayonnaise)
Pickled spring onions (makes enough for 4-6 sandwiches):
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 slices pan bread
1/2 a ripe avocado, sliced
2 thin slices fresh mozzarella (Thicker if you like)
1 medium-sized green zebra tomato (or other heirloom tomato), sliced
a few thin slices cucumber
several slices pickled onion
a handful of sprouts (such as broccoli sprouts), rinsed and dried
a couple of small lettuce leaves (butter or romaine), rinsed and dried
Make the mayonnaise:
In the bowl of a food processor, combine all ingredients Puree smooth, about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Blend in the lemon juice. Chill until needed.
Pickle the onions:
In a medium-sized jar, combine the onions slices, vinegar, sugar, salt, and peppercorns. Put the lid on the jar and let sit for at least 10 minutes, shaking a few times to dissolve the salt and sugar. Use immediately or refrigerate until needed, up to 1 week.
Assemble the sandwiches:
Toast the bread and spread both slices with a thick layer of the mayonnaise. Lay on the toppings, and take the other slice of bread and press down gently!
Amazing, no? Seems like a lot of ingredients, but when mixed as I tell you, they make an amazing mayonnaise!
