Beef & Salad Ciabatta Sandwich


Beef-Salad-CiabattaThere was just Adriano and me tonight so I decided to do a left-over dinner, which always feels great. It clears out the fridge so I can start afresh. I asked Adriano to buy a ciabatta and I filled it with roast beef, tomato slices, avocado, salsa from last night, horseradish, alfalfa sprouts, lettuce and water cress. I made him two other sandwiches with cut bread because I knew 1/2 a ciabatta loaf would not be enough and, in fact, he ate the lot.
I’ll be back to a Jamie Oliver 30-minute meal tomorrow night and it will be Pregnant Jool’s Pasta. It looks like something I might finally be able to make in 30 minutes. I will let you know.

    Nice photos – good vivid color, and I like the reflection. We often make sandwiches when we want to clean out the fridge. Or even when we don’t want to – sometimes we just buy things for a specific sandwich. Easy cooking, but pretty satisfying, too. Nice post – thanks.

      I was pleased with how the photos turned out as I was trying a slightly different setting to my usual one. Both Foodgawker and Tastespotting liked the top one. I wasn’t sure how they would cope with the reflection in the bottom one.
      I love your photos on your blog – you get a lovely feeling to them.

    When I was growing up, we called these sandwiches Dagwoods after a comic strip character called Dagwood who made enormous sandwiches. I’m not sure how he got his mouth comfortably around them. These are only just doable.
