I'm telling everyone about this sandwich.

Let's start with the bread.  I must tell you about the bread.  I used a bread that had asiago cheese on top and stuffed throughout each slice.  Life is all about the choices we make, so be sure to make the bread choice that is epically delicious.

Up next we will talk sweet pea avocado spread.  It's like a fancy guacamole.  I mean, I know guacamole is plenty fancy but itself and we don't need people messing with guacamole, BUT put sweet peas and lemon juice in your guacamole.  It'll be the best decision you make on whatever day you make it.

Then we've got Parmesan.  Dear, Parmesan, you need no introduction.  You are perfect, nutty, tangy, sharp and I always spend way too much money on you.  Maybe one day I'll have a giant wheel of you to toss pasta in just like .  All My Love, Kylie.

Moving on.

Pears.  Thinly sliced pears are on this sandwich under the parmesan and they add a bit of FRESHness that is oh so needed in everyone's life from time to time.

Then the salmon.  I really don't put salmon on sandwiches that much, but I just may do it more from now on.  I know you are not supposed to pair fish with cheese, but it's okay because I usually do things wrong anyway so I'm allowed to pair salmon with cheese.

Lastly a bit of arugula and spicy mustard (but not too spicy because I'm a whimp) AND you're good to sandwich.
