No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
I came across this awesome recipe for gorilla sandwiches yesterday and I just had to make them today. These would be absolutely wonderful for my trip as a portable, healthy meal.
Another bonus about this recipe is that my daughter has a lot of trouble eating salads. She ate this up within minutes and asked for a second one!
Below I have a few pictures of the creation process, and following that, the official Gorilla Sandwich videos.
Supply list: Cucumbers (1 per person), simple avocado salad dressing, mixed greens, chopped red onion, diced tomatoes, chopped avocado, cilantro, and chopped carrot. For an alternative recipe for my daughter, we have included black olives and goat cheese. You can virtually use any ingredients that you like for this sandwich.
First we cut about 3 inches off the top of the cucumber, then began to core it with the veggie peeler.
We continued to core the cucumber using a spoon, being sure to get all the watery bits out without breaking into the skin.
A simple tube is pretty much what you are going for. We used the extra cucmber bits for a cucumber melon smoothie.
Next, we add the ingredients. The goal here is to layer it like a lasagna.
After about every 2 or 3 ingredients we used the handle end of a knife to push the ingredients down, gently. You can use anything that fits.
Fill the cucumber until you get about 1 inch from the top. Take the 3 inch piece that you cut off from the cucumber, core it as you did the bigger piece, turn it upside and place it inside the top of the cucumber, and pin in on with a toothpick. And you're done.
Was it good?
Thumbs way up!
