With an A.L.T. Who Needs Bacon?

The familiar favorite sandwich, bacon, lettuce and tomato has had many incarnations.
I recently read about bacon, lettuce and asparagus, as an alternative. Vegans leave out the pig part and often add some interesting extras. At least I do.

Instead of a salad bowl today, with freshly made whole wheat pita at the ready, I decided to stuff my salad in a pocket.

I thinned some cashew cream with a bit of horseradish and a few drops of rice wine vinegar, then generously dressed diced tomato, red onion, avocado and ribbons of Boston lettuce. A pinch of sea salt, a grind of tellicherry peppercorns and I had a messy marvel!
