Smoked Salmon Sandwich

Spring is in the air! Well...sort of. Technically it's spring, but the last few days (and months, really) have me wishing for warmer times. That's why I decided to share this sandwich I made last summer. It's based on my favorite sandwich from local chain, Hannah's Bretzel. I try to limit my trips there because it can be pricey which is why I set out to make this sandwich on my own. It comes together quickly. I try to slice up extra toppings so I can have this sandwich more than once if the mood strikes. The lightness of this sandwich reminds me of summer days, rooftop hangs, and festivals. I know the time will speed by and summer will be here before we know it!

I love this! If I am flying somewhere I like to have a smoked salmon sandwich and a glass of champagne at the airport - takes away the pain of cattle class when I get on the plane!

The pretzel roll looks great for this! I love smoked salmon. Even here, where summer usually arrives in March, the warm weather is taking its time this year.
