Tuna Club Sandwich ~ My Sandwich Mantra
When I was in high school and college, I would spend my summers down at the beach working in restaurants and delis.
Now I'm not bragging (well maybe a little) but I used to have "regulars" who would frequent my place of employment and specifically request that I make their sandwich...and you know what...I can't say I blamed them....
To this day, I take my sandwich making VERY SERIOUSLY.
My Sandwich Mantra...
Ratio and Love.
Depending on the sandwich you're making, there needs to be the perfect RATIO of ingredients...and while contstructing your sandwich...there must be visible LOVE!
Without Ratio and Love you're left with the following:
1.) a soggy, unbalanced PB and J
2.) a burnt grilled cheese cold in the center
3.) a dry BLT ...light on the bacon
4.) a chicken salad ...riddled with gristle!!!
Haven't we all fallen prey to at least one of these sandwiches mentioned above?!
Here we have a favorite of mine...The Tuna Club Sandwich...cut into quarters and served with a pickle and chips.
Now that's a sandwich you can sink your teeth into...
MADE WITH PERFECT RATIO...and a WHOLE LOT OF LOVE!
