"On a recent trip to New York I had the most amazing lettuce sandwich at Saltie. Would it be possible to print the recipe?"

You'll need

1 cos lettuce, large leaves separated and each cut widthways into 3 pieces 4 radishes, thinly sliced on a mandolin 2 tbsp finely chopped chives 1 tbsp finely chopped anchovy fillets (about 6) 60 ml (¼ cup) extra-virgin olive oil Juice of 1 lemon 4 focaccia rolls, halved 160 gm whole-egg mayonnaise


  • 01
  • Combine lettuce with radish, chives, anchovies, olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl, toss to combine and season to taste.
  • 02
  • Spread focaccia bases and tops with mayonnaise, pile cos mixture onto bases, then sandwich with tops and serve.

Note This sandwich recipe from New York sandwich bar Saltie is a winner in its delicious simplicity. At Saltie the kitchen makes its own focaccia and mayonnaise, but we've substituted store-bought to save time.
