I had a sandwich last week at Mrkt that was similar to the one I’ve made for the blog. It was so delicious I had to try and make my own version.
And Voila! Salami Sandwich with Kale Pesto, Mushrooms and Onions
- 1 bunch kale (approximately 2 cups)
- 1 cup basil
- 2 gloves garlic
- juice of 2 lemons
- 1/4 toasted pine nuts
- 1/2 cup olive oil
Blend until smooth. This freezes well, so if you don’t use the whole batch it will keep for a couple weeks in the freezer for a later use.
Kale Pesto Mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp pesto
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 1 lb slice white mushrooms
- 2 thinly sliced onions
- 2 cloves garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- salami ( 4 slices per sandwich) – I used peppered salami
- provolone cheese (2 slices per sandwich)
- bread- I used sourdough but any bread of your liking will do
First, cook and caramelize mushrooms, onions, garlic on medium heat until tender and have golden color. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Turn oven on to broil
Take two slices of bread, add pesto mayonnaise to both sides of bread. Add mushrooms and onions to one side of bread and the top with salami. On the other slice of bread you will place cheese.
On a baking sheet broil both sides of the sandwich until cheese is gooey and golden. Remove fro oven carefully assemble sandwich and eat!
