Think of this Pickled Bulb Green Goddess Sandwich as basically a salad stuffed between two slices of bread—and a healthy way to up the ante of your midday meal. It stars the vinegary bite of pickled onions and leeks. Yes please! You can also reinvent this recipe as a grain bowl. Top cooked grains like quinoa with the baby greens, chopped smoked tofu, diced avocado, and sliced cucumber. Drizzle on the green goddess dressing and finish with a handful of pickled bulbs.
Tip: Mellow out
Raw red onion adds a bright, crisp note to salads and to sandwiches like this one. The key is soaking the sliced onion in ice water for about 30 minutes before adding the onion to the mix. Skip this step and the enzymes that are released once the onion is cut can make it overpowering and pungent.
