This recipe is a crowd pleaser for kids and adults alike and comes together quickly for an easy weeknight meal or a perfect picnic treat. HAMAMA microgreens make a crunchy and refreshing addition. Benefit from a clear boost of protein in this texturally satisfying flavor bomb of a sandwich. Pro tip: we highly recommend serving these babies with your favorite fresh cut seasonal vegetable.


A sandwich of bacon, coleslaw, tomatoes, and salad microgreens.

Ingredients:

For the sandwich:

- 8 slices bacon, applewood or hickory smoked
- 1 large tomato, sliced thin (about 8 slices)
- 1 tray of HAMAMA salad microgreens, harvested
- 12 slices Martin’s Potato Bread or other sandwich bread, lightly toasted

For the chicken salad:

- 2 rotisserie chicken breasts, meat pulled and shredded
- ¼ cup + 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
- ¼ cup Greek yogurt
- 1 shallot, finely minced
- 1 cup shredded coleslaw mix
- ¼ cup toasted pepitas (squash seeds)
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice, fresh squeezed
- 1 tsp. old bay or Cajun seasoning
- Your favorite fresh cut seasonal vegetable for serving, optional

Preparation:

In a medium skillet, cook bacon until crispy and transfer to paper towels (to blot out the excess fat). Reserve the leftover fat in the fridge for future use.

In a small bowl, combine ingredients for the chicken salad, and mix well until thoroughly combined. Lightly toast bread, slice tomatoes and harvest greens to make the sandwiches.

To assemble a sandwich, layer the following ingredients in this order (from bottom to top):

-Toasted slice of bread
-Chicken Salad
-Sliced Tomato
-Toasted slice of bread
-A little smear of mayonnaise
-Bacon (2 strips per sandwich)
-HAMAMA microgreens
-Toasted slice of bread

Serve with fresh cut seasonal vegetables of your choice. Our favorite are carrots, broccoli and salad greens. Enjoy!
