I was contemplating the deliciousness of sandwiches today as I was having one, and I am recording some of the most delicious
1. The most delicious was one I had today, and it will only be getting better over the next month or so. Tomato and cucumber with a little mayonnaise and salt. Good bread is essential. I am partial to that of Alavarado St. Bakery, somewhat hard to come by in these parts, toasted. This, in my opinion, is the most delicious sandwich of all, but it would not be worth the trouble to eat one once the good tomatoes are gone.
2. Grilled cheese. Different kinds of cheese are good. We had some particularly nice ones with Brie the other day. Even better is to have some thinly sliced red onion in it, or some sliced kalamata olives. Again, excellent bread is required, and the Alvarado St Bakery bread is perfect. We have them here cooked in a pan with olive oil on the bread.
3. This was close, and might edge out #2. Pane Cunzatu. You could look it up. We first had these in Sicily. A tasty chewy bread, sort of a flattish ciabatta, sliced the long way, toasted and rubbed liberally with garlic cloves. A good drizzle of olive oil. Rucola, mozzarella, roasted peppers, a bit of tomato, olives and/or capers, and anchovies. Good Sicilian ones. You need a lot of paper towels to deal with the dripping olive oil.
4. Tuna salad. Got to be the good imported stuff, packed in oil. No bumble bee or star-kist. A little mayonnaise, capers, good toasted bread.
Of course there are other delicious sandwiches, but these are the ones I seem to like the best.
