What’s better than wine and quickly-grilled sandwiches for dinner? More wine? More sandwiches? I don’t know either. This particular sandwich, with Turkey, Swiss, and Sun-Dried Tomato, is similar to one featured at Veritas, a wine bar in Dupont.
Bread of your choice
Sun-dried tomatoes – see below on how to make your own
Whole-grain mustard ( such as this recipe that was featured earlier on PoP)
Assemble the sandwiches and grill them in the method you prefer (grill pan/Foreman/grill/etc). Slice into 4 triangles and serve with wine.
Make your own sun-dried tomatoes (an activity to be reserved for those days when you have no wine):
1. Slice 1 lb. of tomatoes
2. Season with salt (lightly!).
3. Heat the tomatoes in oil.
4. Once hot, add herbs of your choosing, a thorough sprinkling of sugar, and enough water to keep them moist.
5. Heat until caramelized.
