Banh Mi

Bursting with crunchy pickled carrots and a kick of heat from the jalapeno, this Vietnamese-inspired sandwich uses your choice of protein and is the perfect balance of sweet, sour, and salty. Click here for the full recipe.

  • Recipes, generally, can be looked at as road maps or guides. Feel free to get creative and go off-course. Think about your own flavor preferences. What could you change about a dish – add, remove, increase, or decrease – to make it more to your liking?
