As a little girl, I couldn’t wait for the Sunday paper. We didn’t have a television growing up, so the Sunday comics were a big hit with us girls. And the Blondie comic was one of my favorites. Did you read Blondie??

Most people know what a Dagwood sandwich is, but here’s what I found on Wikipedia.

Basically it’s meat, cheese, and condiments.

So earlier this week for lunch, I made my own Dagwood, although not quite so tall. How in the world would you ever get a sandwich that big into your mouth? :)

I took veggies, Swiss cheese, and a couple pieces of bacon. (Instagram lunch shot.) :)

Put it all together with beloved avocado slices. Which I think really make a sandwich.

And added Zucchini Relish on top.

Later this summer when zucchini is coming out of our ears, I’ll be canning my delicious Zucchini Relish. This year we received a jar from our friends, who gave it for Christmas gifts (using my recipe – yum!)

I haven’t made it in a couple of years and but honestly, it takes any ordinary sandwich to the next level.

It’s the bomb. I can’t wait to share the recipe with you in a few months! Stay tuned ….

In the meantime, I asked on RE Facebook what 3 top ingredients are a MUST for a tasty sandwich.

Here are a few replies:

When I read through the entire thread of comments, I do believe avocado + bacon were the most popular ingredients.
