I am not what you might call a “sandwich lover”. Sure I will eat and enjoy them from time to time, but unlike some of my friends who can eat turkey sandwiches almost every day, I need something more out of my sandwiches. Deli meat, Wonder bread, American cheese and mayo may have been OK when I was growing up, but I’m a big girl now. Give me more. Take this sandwich for instance, it has perfectly seasoned chicken, vine ripened tomatoes, crisp lettuce and, my favorite part, a delicious yogurt-dill sauce. Now my dear friends that is a sandwich.
One of my favorite summer herbs has to be dill. One whiff and I am reminded of lazy summer days enjoying freshly made pickles in the back yard. But dill is not only delicious with pickles. It is great with fish, especially salmon, veggies, potatoes and of course chicken. For this recipe, I decided to make a dill sauce with some plain yogurt I had in the fridge. It was the perfect cool sauce for this sandwich. We also found that the left over sauce worked nicely as a dip for the Walla Walla sweet onion rings I served along side. Don’t worry, I’ll share that recipe with you next week.
I will mention that the use of yogurt does make this sauce a little thin. I was a little nervous when I was making it but I found that it worked itself nicely into the little crevasses of the ciabatta bread. If you want something a little thicker and creamier use half sour cream and half yogurt.
