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.

Nutrition Info


Tomatoes are rich in lycopene which is a pokey antioxidant. Antioxidants are like bouncers at a night club, they go around finding stray electrons that are busy causing trouble in your body, and find them a love partner so they can both stay in and cuddle on the sofa.

Tomatoes are also a brilliant source of vitamin C, which supports skin and connective tissue health as well as immunity and iron absorption. The biotin in tomatoes is good for controlling blood sugar.
