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

 

Per sandwich:

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!
