Last week I told you about my favorite summer drink (sparkling raspberry lemonade). This week I wanted to tell you about my favorite sandwich to eat in the summer. I like to call it a California "Club" Sandwich.
I love making my own gourmet deli sandwiches at home for lunch. They are cheaper, faster, and usually better. Often we create sandwiches for dinner in the summer because it doesn't require us to turn the oven or stove on in an already hot kitchen. Sandwiches are perfect for showcasing delicious slices of fresh tomatoes from my garden and go great with a side of fresh summer fruit.
I realize that your typical club sandwich has bacon on it and here I've opted for ham instead. It just makes the sandwich that much faster to prepare. But if you have bacon and it's already cooked or you don't mind spending the couple extra minutes to cook a few slices up, then by all means use that on this California Club Sandwich if you like.
