When you're in the mood for something out of the ordinary at lunchtime, these unique sandwiches will hit the spot. Try a tuna sandwich inspired by Nicoise salad, a Vietnamese-style sloppy joe, a muffuletta, Italian braised pork with caramelized apples, or a luxurious lobster roll.
The ingredients of a Nicoise salad -- oil-packed tuna, cucumber, red onion, hard-cooked eggs, and olive tapenade -- combine in a lunchbag-perfect sandwich. For the best flavor, make the sandwich at least an hour ahead of time.
Combine softened butter with chopped anchovies, lemon zest, parsley, and chives to spread on these toasty pressed mozzarella sandwiches inspired by a traditional Italian appetizer. This recipe is courtesy of Sean Rembold from Marlow and Sons restaurant in Brooklyn, New York.
