Tulip sandwich

By Gosia

Preparation time: Servings: 1-2

The inspiration for this cute tulip sandwich came from the Ottawa Tulip Festival, that we went to see last weekend.  We saw millions of tulips in all the different colors and varieties, here is a sample:

I took millions of pictures that we looked at back home and still were not able to decide which tulip was the most beautiful. They were all gorgeous!

I love May. I love spring. I love it even more now, after 2.5 years spent in Canada. It is so good to be outside without 10 layers of clothes we needed to wear during winter! Everything is so green, fresh and smells so good!

Being in spring mood, having seen all these beautiful flowers, no wonder we had tulips in mind when preparing lunch:) I guess, I don't need to mention that my daughter loved it and ate it all with a big smile!

Ingredients

  • 1 bread roll
  • 1 slice of ham
  • 1 slice of orange cheese
  • slices of red and orange pepper
  • cucumber
  • few salad leaves
  • butter

Did you know that Canadian Tulip Festival held on Ottawa each May, started in 1945? Princess Juliana of the Netherlands presented Ottawa with 100,000 tulip bulbs in appreciation for the safe haven offered to exiled Dutch royalty and the role Canadian troops played in the liberation of the Netherlands.

Preparation

Step1 Cut the bread roll in half. Use a knife to cut tulip shapes in both parts of the sandwich:

Step2 Cut the same tulip shape in the orange cheese and in ham. Cut few thin slices of orange and red pepper. Cut a piece of cucumber in half, then cut off cucumber skin on both sides to make leaves.

Step3 Spread butter on bread. Place cheese on one tulip sandwich and ham on the other one. Use orange and red pepper to decorate tulip flowers. Place cucumbers on the plate to make tulips' stems. Use salad leaves to decorate the bottom part of the tulips. Enjoy!
