Pear & Strawberry Sandwich with Brie Cheese
As promised, here is the other delicious recipe that was inspired by a meal we had on our Shore vacation this summer. This copycat recipe comes from one of our favorite restaurants, Yvette's. They serve the most beautiful artisan sandwiches - and so so so many of their offerings are vegetarian which makes me super happy.
This sandwich is so pretty! The flavors are bright and sunny - it's especially good on a warm summer day. I served it with a side of kettle chips and a big fruit smoothie.
This makes two sandwiches:
2 soft individual-size baguettes, lightly toasted in the oven just before making
1 crunchy pear, sliced thin
2 - 3 ripe, but firm, strawberries, sliced thin
6 oz of soft brie cheese, rind removed and cubed
mixed salad greens
poppy seed dressing (I like Brianna's)
Slice the baguettes and lightly toast in the oven right before you are ready to assemble the sandwiches.
Divide the brie cheese evenly between the toasted two baguettes. Add mixed salad greens. Now artfully (try! haha!) add the sliced pears and strawberries, alternating pear then strawberry. Finish the sandwich with a drizzle of the poppy seed dressing. Serve with a little side of dressing so you can dip as you eat (the dressing is really yummy!). Eat immediately! Enjoy!
