I simply don’t know . . . what I am loving more? Is it the spring weather or this spectacular springtime sandwich? Well, I am not going to pick one or the other. Oh no! Instead I will simply choose both . . . and preferably together! Yes, I will enjoy this sandwich while sitting in the sunshine and warmth. Every bite will be deliciously spring-like.
After winter, who doesn’t love, I mean really just love, Springtime? The shedding of everything winter. It is both physical and emotional . . . at least for me. Springtime is . . . lighter in so many ways. No need for the heavy coats, scarves, hats and gloves. Getting out of the house seems almost . . . effortless! And meals become lighter too. With a greater abundance of fresh produce available, meals became simple. For me it is all about simple and fresh. And of course, taste!
Let’s get into the kitchen and make a sandwich that is spectacularly spring-like . . . simple, fresh and ever-so tasty! And don’t let it’s simplicity fool you. Because you will be so surprised at how something so simple will wow you! Your first bite will do exactly that . . . yes, wow you! And your last bite, will be begging for more. Good thing it is a simple sandwich . . . enough time to make another!
A springtime sandwich . . . Cucumber Mint & Dill with Maple Wasabi Mayo!
2 slices of bread (I used a whole grain spelt bread, but it is your sandwich and your choice!)
organic english cucumber (as many thin slices at you like)
fresh mint leaves
Wasabi Maple Mayo (or should I say . . . secret sauce)
1 tablespoon mayonaise
1/2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon wasabi paste
*plenty of secret sauce for more sandwiches . . . and believe me, you will be making more!
Stir together the ingredients for the mayo. Slice the cucumbers and gather the herbs.
Spread a thin layer of mayo on both slices of bread. Layer the cucumber slices on one piece of bread. Next, add a layer of mint and dill. Top with second piece of bread and slice in half.
Take your first bite . . . Wow! Something so simple . . . is so very spectacular especially in the warmth and sunshine of spring!
To the lightness of spring . . . one simple yet spectacularly delicious bite of a Cucumber Mint & Dill Sandwich at a time! Hugs, M.
