Beef & Salad Ciabatta Sandwich

Beef & Salad Ciabatta

There 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.

  1. My husband would really love this sandwich, as would I. Thanks for sharing, going to add it to my list.

  2. My husband loves most of what I cook but he is partial to a good big sandwich too.

  3. 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.

  4. Oh my gosh, this is stunning. I love a good sandwich and this takes it to a whole new level. Just gorgeous.

  5. 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.
