Sourdough Pork Sandwiches With Parsley Pesto Mayonnaise
Why I Love This Recipe
This goes with the "Simply Roast Pork" recipe that I have also posted. These sandwiches are great. The only thing that I would change next time is that I would use my Cuisinart to make the mayo sauce and not the blender as then blender did not chop up the parsley well. Also make sure that you drain and pat dry the roasted red peppers well or you will end up with soggy bread. Yes I did use the anchovy paste for the first time in my life and I lived to tell about it.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup packed parsley leaves
1 tablespoon capers, drained
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
8 (1-ounce) slices sourdough bread
2 cups trimmed arugula
2 cups thinly sliced Simply Roasted Pork (about 12 ounces)
2 (7-ounce) bottles roasted red bell peppers, drained
Combine the first 8 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Combine parsley mixture, cheese, and mayonnaise, stirring well.
Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture over each bread slice; top each of 4 slices with 1/2 cup arugula and 1/2 cup Simply Roasted Pork. Arrange red bell peppers evenly over pork. Top each serving with remaining 4 bread slices. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally.
