It’s Father’s Day weekend, so I wanted to make a dinner that appealed to Hubs’ tastes — burgers, barbecue, hoagies, etc. — but stay on the healthier side. So, I made a Dairy-free Sub Salad. A hoagie in a bowl!
I topped green leaf lettuce with Vidalia onions, cherry tomatoes, and mild banana peppers. Then came the deli meats: no-salt-added turkey breast, low-fat ham, and Genoa salami. (If you’re concerned about cross-contamination, kindly ask the employee at your deli counter to switch to a fresh deli slicer blade before he or she slices your meats. Asking him or her to wipe down the machine would be an additional safety measure.) A simple dairy-free adjustment — Chao Creamy Original Slices instead of Muenster –made this sandwich-turned-salad safe for all of us to eat. Drizzled over top: a dijon, hoagie oil, and mayo dressing. It was a hit!
