A springtime sandwich . . . Cucumber Mint & Dill with Maple Wasabi Mayo!


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!
