Turn an Ordinary Sandwich into Extraordinary

This tasty sandwich is composed of a few simple ingredients: thinly sliced whole wheat bread (toasted), baby arugula, sliced tomatoes, Boar's Head Honey Maple Ham, lemon mayonnaise, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper . The ingredient that turns the sandwich from ordinary into extraordinary is the lemon mayonnaise.
To make the lemon mayonnaise: add the zest of two lemons and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice to 1/2 cup of mayonnaise. If you like spicy, you could add a dash of either Tabasco Sauce or cayenne pepper. Another addition to the sandwich that would work nicely would be thinly sliced red onions.

The beautiful hand turned wood bowl from the Weston Bowl Mill in Weston, Vermont that is holding the lemons is one of my new vintage treasures that I found in DairyFarmAntiques, a fellow vintage shop on Etsy. The bowl is made of maple with a natural finish that develops a patina with use. Just gorgeous, don't you think !
