The Bread Swap That Gives Your Sandwich A Rush Of Tangy Flavor
Using pickles as bread slices in a sandwich is a great way to cut down on carbs while still getting that excellent pickle flavor, except in a much more pickles-forward sort of way.
Spears or long-sliced pickles are an ideal choice because they have the length, surface area, and heft necessary to bring weight and flavor to a sandwich.
Dill pickles make a good choice, as their tang pairs well with sandwich fillings. Bread and butter pickles also work, but they are usually sold as chips, not spears.
So, now that you have your pickles all set, you can begin to assemble your pickle sandwiches. Note that you are going to need toothpicks to hold the sandwiches together.
Fillings like turkey, cheddar, ham, Swiss, roast beef, salami, and provolone all do well in pickle subs. Feel free to include classic tomato and lettuce, as well.
