The Trifecta- a sandwich from Cupcake Punk

One of my favorite bloggers is Jes from Cupcake Punk. We have a lot of things in common including our love of beer and tasty vegan food. The other day she created a recipe and I just had to try it because it involved tomatoes which are pretty much my favorite thing about summer and it looked so yummy. The sandwich is called the Trifecta which is a word that originates from the very non-vegan activity of horseracing. A trifecta is when you guess the three winners in the order that they win. It is hard to decide what order the winners come in here, there is a cornmeal crusted fried green tomato, sundried tomatoes , and a plump juicy red tomato. You may think that the tomato might be overwhelming but that was not the case at all, the flavors were all so different and worked magically together. It makes me feel like singing.I also made the avocado potato salad from Vegan Brunch. It was suprisingly more like a potato salad and less like guacamole than I thought it would be even though it had 2 avocados, lime, red onion, and cayenne. With the leftover potato salad, bread, and sundried tomatoes I made another sandwich for today and I can’t wait to eat it!

    Awesome! But what did you drink with it? 🙂 You’re right, it’s not overly tomatoey; I’m so glad you loved it! And it’s so pretty too!

    HA I drank iced tea only because I was way to lazy to pick up anything. The only thing I would do different is add some olives. Mmm.

    Oh my god, I want that tomato sandwich so bad. It looks amazing. And I’m making that potato salad this week and I can’t wait. Yay avocados!

    I thought Jes’s sandwich sounded so good and just perfect for all the tomatoes we’ll be enjoying this summer. I liked that potato salad pretty good, but I liked the potato cole slaw even more.
