Spring Sandwich

A most classic of Italian light meals, for the enjoyment of my readers.

Ingredients

- White bread (not toast), possibly homemade. Pitta is an acceptable substitute.
- Cooked, sliced Parma ham
- Romaine lettuce
- Ripe slicing tomato
- Mayonnaise
- Mozzarella (optional)
- Salt (optional)

Cut two medium thickness slices of bread and warm them in a toaster - they should be warmed only, or just lightly toasted. In the meantime, cut a few thin tomato slices and trim a couple of lettuce leaves.

Spread a generous amount of mayonnaise on one warm bread slice, cover with the lettuce and 2-3 (according to taste) slices of ham, folded in "waves" better than spread. Add a layer of tomato slices, salt if you like, and top with the second slice of bread. Enjoy...

Some people also add mozzarella, but in my opinion it is just redundant. The secret of the spring (primavera) sandwich is the delicate, equilibrated mix of flavours; no one should overwhelm the others. For this reason, I also cannot recommend the addition of spices or sauces.
