Salads, sandwiches…….everyone loves them. I know I do! There is a local restaurant who used to serve my favorite salad. All of a sudden they took it off the menu. I was so upset! I mean, how rude!! Ha.
It was simple…..spinach, greens, chunks of tuna and sprinkled with a few pumpkin seeds. It was all tossed in a spicy Asian dressing. It was so light and absolutely delicious.
Now I just make my own. But this time I used salmon and put it all in a sandwich, with homemade rolls. It’s one of my favorite sandwiches. Whether you use salmon or tuna, you can’t go wrong with this one.
