Peanut butter and basil salad sandwich

When I was little we used to have big sandwiches that my mum called ‘Dagwood Bumsteads’. They contained peanut butter, salad and salad cream and were stacked high.

Our version has basil and mayo and is mega!

The pic’d sarnie is by our Thomas, or ‘Thomarto’ as he’s known in the trade.
