- thinly sliced bistro-style ham (pricey, but soooo good),
- thinly sliced shallots (not too many... intense flavor),
- sliced green pepper (I put it in almost all sandwiches... adds a nice crunch),
- sliced American cheese (I would have used Brie if I had it),
- and red leaf lettuce.
Other than bread, there are three essential elements to a sandwich: flavor, texture and moisture. Flavor is achieved by harmoniously combining ingredients; this one uses ingredients often used in French cuisine. Texture is the crunch; other than green pepper, you could use red pepper, iceberg lettuce, cucumber, etc. Moisture is created by condiments or sauces.
