This sandwich is so simple to make, but the flavor is very complex. The idea was born from a salad I like to make to go along with paella or empanadas. You are just a few ingredients away from a hearty, vegan lunch.
5 sicilian olives (quartered)
1 clementine (peeled and segmented)
1 parsley sprig
a few thin slices of red onion
a drizzle of olive oil
6 toasted almonds (roughly chopped)
whole wheat pita
Mix the first six ingredients in a bowl making sure the olive oil gives everything a shiny coat. Place mixture in the center of a warm pita, top with almonds, squeeze the lemon on top, and roll it up. This sandwich has a wonderful sweet and sour flavor profile. It may or may not need salt depending on how salty your olives are. This delicious and quick sandwich is a must-try.
ohhh that looks yummy!
Pairing clementines with olives is genius. What are Sicilian olives? Are they from the fancy olive bar?
Oh, and where did you get that pita? I love fluffy pita like that, but I can never find them.
whole foods on both counts.
Did you really count the almonds? only 6?
Every time I eat almonds I can't resist a big handful, they are so yummy (perhaps that is why I have a tummy pooch!). Portion control is my weakness, but I will try your suggestion of counting things before I eat them.
speaking of olives, this is a recipe i adore, and can't get enough of. to me, it's the perfect dinner. i wonder if you'd like it?
