BB: Caesar Club Sandwich

The second Barefoot Blogger recipe for March, the Caesar Club Sandwich, was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. It had to be the caesar mayonnaise.

It was so good that my daughter never realized there were sun-dried tomatoes on it. (Score!)

While I did buy a ready-made ciabatta from the local grocery to save some time, I did make the caesar mayonnaise, including the bit of anchovy. I had a tube of anchovy paste in the pantry, just in case, so the time had arrived. I really believe it made all the difference in flavor, adding a subtle undertone to the dressing.

I love arugula, so that was the first layer.

Next came the sun-dried tomatoes,

followed by slices of Parmesan and some baked prosciutto. I could only find chopped pancetta at the grocery, so I decided to substitute with the prosciutto. Only a purist would know the difference.

The next layer consisted of slices of chicken.

Finally, there was another layer of arugula,

and, there you have it.

A most delicious sandwich, perfect for any meal.

Thanks to Karen of Shortbread for a great choice. Stop by the Barefoot Blogger site for more inspiration.

Great photos! I love arugula, too, and I don't think the sandwich would be the same without the sun-dried tomatoes. But the dressing really makes it something special!
