The Best Sandwich You’ve Probably Never had…

Vegetarian/vegan sandwiches sometimes get unfairly criticized, even ridiculed.  This is not necessarily undeserved.  I have tasted some veggie sandwiches that were, well, not so good.  JET and I have always liked sandwiches, and I have worked on techniques for making healthy, delicious vegan sandwiches for the last 18 months.  OK, maybe they won’t ever replace your favorite Cuban Sandwich, but they are pretty damn good… I give you….The Sal-wich – a salad in a sandwich… WP_20150224_009
