Chicken, asparagus and avocado sandwich
Makes 2 heavily laden sandwiches
Cold roast chicken, basil, tarragon, dill, mayonnaise, asparagus, avocado, iceberg lettuce, spring onions, sourdough bread
Boil small asparagus spears in deep water till just tender (they should still be slightly crisp), then drain. Slice in half lengthways and set aside. Shred 2 crisp iceberg lettuce leaves. Trim 4 spring onions and halve lengthways. Peel and slice a small avocado. Slice a cooked chicken breast, or remove slices from yesterday’s roast.
Put 4 heaped tablespoons of mayonnaise in a bowl, stir in a tablespoon each of chopped basil, tarragon and dill and season lightly with salt. Toast 4 slices of sourdough bread and spread each of them with the herb mayonnaise. Top 2 of the slices with the lettuce and asparagus, followed by the spring onions and avocado. Place slices of chicken on and sandwich with the remaining bread.
Makes 2 heavily laden sandwiches. Toasted sourdough, herb mayo, cold chicken, crisp, icecold lettuce and avocado. Possibly my favourite sandwich.
