Veggie & salami croissant sandwich

My mother is a great cook. I have always raved about her food. She makes mouth-watering pork chops and potatoes and chicken and even her macaroni & cheese is beyond delicious. This veggie & salami croissant sandwich is my favorite thing that she makes. Every time I see her, I put in a request. And no matter how many times I make it myself, I can never get it to taste quite like hers. Why is that?

Cut a butter croissant in half, lengthwise (the bigger, the better). Spread mayonnaise on the inside of one of the croissant halves and spread cream cheese on the inside of the other half. As my mom has told me many times, make sure to spread the mayo and cream cheese all the way out to the edges of the croissant to ensure every bite is filled with as much flavor as possible. No half-hearted spreading allowed!

Sprinkle a light dusting of seasoning salt over the cream cheese and mayo.

On the bottom half of the croissant, stack:

A few slices of salami

Sliced tomatoes

Sliced cucumbers

Snap peas

Alfalfa sprouts

Place the other half of the croissant on top and cut in half.

I should probably mention that this sandwich can get pretty messy. Also, I often list other ingredients that can be possible substitutes in other recipes. For this sandwich, everything is perfect! I suggest making it exactly as it is here. The flavors mix perfectly to create my favorite sandwich in all the world.

I made this recently, first with romaine lettuce instead of the sprouts and snap peas and then as is WAY better as is. Can't mess with perfection, I guess! I had never had alfalfa sprouts before, so I was a bit hesitant to try them. This sandwich rocks...thanks for sharing!

It looks messy and appetizing! I always make sure to spread mayo and cream cheese all the way out to the edges too!

That looks wonderful! I'd never think to put salami on there, but it sounds great.

This is the perfect lunch! Light but filling! I have made it several times now since finding your recipe so I though it only right that I comment on how much I have enjoyed it. It's really simple to put together and better than just a regular ole sandwich.
