Have you've ever had that favorite item on the menu that you would always order at a resturant and then once in a blue moon you would decide to try something different, and it just wasn't as good as your favorite or you were disappointed and wanted to kick yourself for ordering something different when you should have just gotten what you love? That was me everytime I didn't order this sandwich and try something different, I would always regret it.
This is one of my all time, hands down favorite sandwiches in the whole wide world. I like to call this a copy cat version of the Corfu Sandwich from a awesome little cafe in Anchorage Alaska. Before we left AK to live in Japan, we made sure we visited all of our favorite restaurants in Anchorage and took a menu from each place so we could recreate them at home.
My favorite ingredients in this sandwich are the sourdough bread (you have to use sourdough, trust me) minced kalamata olives and pesto. Together these ingredients will have your taste buds doing a little happy dance in your mouth.
Copy Cat Corfu Sandwich
4 (1/4 " thick) slices of Sourdough Bread
2 tablespoons your favorite Pesto
1/2 cup minced Kalamata Olives
4 slices Tomatoes
2-3 leafs of Red Leaf Lettuce
thinly sliced Red Onions
- Toast your bread and spread a tablespoon of pesto onto one slice and on the other slice spread half of your minced olives.
- Layer the tomatoes on top of the olives top with lettuce and red onions and sandwich it all together with your pesto slice and enjoy!
