Tote lavash sandwiches with you on a trip and everyone will drool when you pull one out to eat. You’ll probably get a question or two about where you bought those sandwiches. Not only do lavash sandwiches travel extremely well, but they give you a blank canvas for culinary creativity.
For example, we made these sandwiches with what we had on hand, items that would taste good together. Salmon salad is the base. Take a can of good quality salmon, toss in some minced onion, minced garlic, and homemade mayonnaise.
Every good lavash has greens. We chose arugula because the peppery bite in arugula sings with the strong flavor of salmon. Black olives add color and avocado adds texture. What we would have added was sliced radishes both for the flavor and the crunch. But alas, that was one item not on hand. You work with what you’ve got!
As for the bread itself, you need to use it when it’s fresh – within a day or two of purchase. It dries into a cracker quickly and will not roll. If the bread dries beyond sandwich-making capacity, break it up into bite-sized pieces. Fry it in coconut oil and use as croutons.
Trader Joe’s carries lavash, but you better get there early. It sells out fast. Pick it up at an ethnic grocery or bakery. Freshly bagged lavash is soft and super easy to work with.
Happy travels and happy eating!
