A Dressed Up Lettuce Sandwich
Have you ever made yourself a lettuce sandwich....lettuce and mayo or butter sandwiched between two pieces of bread? Sort of bland but supposedly great if you suffer from insomnia and eaten about a half hour before bed, or so they say. I like them but to add a little pizazz I make them with a pimiento cheese mayo.
Makes almost as many sandwiches as you like.
Pimiento Cheese Mayo:
8 ounces medium cheddar, very finely grated
1 cup mayo
4 ounce jar diced pimientos, liquid included
1 Tbl prepared horseradish
1/4 tsp cayenne
Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the flavors mingle.
For each sandwich:
2 slices sandwich bread of your choice, toasted or not
About one cup shredded sturdy lettuce such as Romaine or iceberg
A few spoonfuls of the Pimiento Cheese Mayo
Spread one side of each slice of bread with as much of the prepared mayo as you like. Top one side with the lettuce and place the other slice, mayo side down over the top.
Slice in half for easy eating. Enjoy!
