A Sandwich a Day

A different sandwich profiled every single day.

In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

The Antipasto focaccia panini from the People's Food Co-op deli in La Crosse, Wisconsin, is so much more than "vegetarian panini" would you have you think. It's packed with vegetables and chips are included in the $4.95 price (you could get carrots but we're talking kettle-cooked chips here!). Punchy sun-dried tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, provolone cheese, red onion, salad greens and pepperoncinis on Asiago focaccia bread that's spread with pesto. The focaccia bread has a winning crunch yet is wonderfully soft in the middle. It's a filling sandwich that doesn't need anything more (except those kettle chips, ahem).
