Green Goddess Sandwich

Green Goddess Sandwich
This green goddess sandwich is pretty much the essence of summer! It starts out with a base of fresh, field ripened heirloom tomatoes, moves on to cool avocados along with creamy fresh mozzarella and of course it's finished with the flavour packed green goddess mayo! The green goddess mayo is a tasty mayonnaise with plenty of herbs, like basil, tarragon and chives, in addition to lemon juice, garlic and anchovies and it's so yummy that you'll want to slather it on everything; not to mention devouring it by the spoonful! For a bit of tangy pungency I like to add onions and radish and to make sure that they are not overpowering I pickle them lightly in a bit of vinegar which mellows them out nicely. These green goddess sandwiches are the perfect way to enjoy some of summers bounty!
