The 'Opa' Sandwich

With all the lovely goodies I got in Astoria, I wanted to commemorate my trip there with a lovely meal.
I had halloumi! Which means, I could make the halloumi sandwich in CL!

117. Halloumi, Rocket and Tomato 'Club' - *Toast*

This is the only vegetarian club sandwich in CL, and not having any bacon in it, it was A-OK with me. I put the sandwich together quickly and satisfied my hungry belly.

First, I made a sort of dressing - lemon juice, smoked paprika, and olive oil.

I tossed this with some salad leaves. The sandwich is supposed to have only rocket, but I didn't have that, so used a mixture, though, rocket (arugula) was in there! I also sliced a tomato very thinly.

I sliced some halloumi too...

and assembled the sandwich. I used the 'greek' bread, as it was just calling me the whole subway ride home.

This was delicious! YUM! Soooo good! I love halloumi! It is salty and has a different texture, but it was really good. I loved it in this sandwich. I even made one for my lunch today. Mmmm, can't wait.

I would like to buy the book CL but would like imperial measurements if possible. I see has the book. Do you know if this edition would have imperial measurements?

I know I should adapt but I just prefer the cups and tsps I am familiar with. :-)
thanks and your blog is wonderful!

I don't think any of the editions are Imperial. The paperback has just come out on, but it's the same publisher, which tells me it will be in metric.

It's a shame though. But I do love my scales, so I seem to manage. :)
