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

1.Combine lettuce with radish, chives, anchovies, olive oil and lemon juice in a bowl, toss to combine and season to taste.
2.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.
