Make pesto with whatever bitter greens and nuts you have.
I did mine with walnuts, arugula, olive oil, garlic. No cheese because milk-allergic Bear will be eating this epic sandwich.
Burn a black pepper. BURN IT. Like, utterly black. Because when it’s purely carbon on the outside, the skin slides off so easily. Unlike this one, this one was a pain in the ass to peel.
Cut into sexy strips.
Mise up! Slice tomatoes, rip up your lettuce/arugula, bust out the nice olive oil and balsamic.
For meats, any cold cuts will do. Here we have prosciutto, mortadella, and turkey.
Take a baguette, slice it in half horizontally. Dig some of the bread out of the bottom half. Spread on pesto, lay out your meats, then your vegetables. Sprinkle a nice amount of olive oil and balsamic oil and grind on some salt and pepper. Throw on some provolone cheese if you’re not feeding dairy allergic people. Spread pesto on the top half and stack it onto the monster you have created. Wrap tightly for transport.
Now choose a sunny spot in the park and have a picnic.
