Herb mayo

1 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)

2 teaspoons fresh thyme (chopped)

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic (minced)


8 slices crusty bread

12 slices deli ham

8 slices provolone

1/4 cup dijon mustard

1/2 cup herb mayo

1 arugula

1/2 red onion (thinly sliced)

1 tomato (thinly sliced)


  1. To make the herb mayo, simply mix plain mayo with oil, garlic, parsley, and thyme.
  2. Spread about 2 tbsps of herb mayo on 4 slices of bread. Top with 3 slices of ham, 2 slices of provolone, tomato slices, onion, and arugula.
  3. Spread 1 tbsp mustard on the other 4 slices of bread. Put each piece on top of the arugula with the mustard side down.
  4. Serve.


You have endless options when it comes to the bread. But I highly recommend the crusty type like ciabatta or sourdough. You are also free to utilize white bread or wheat bread if that’s what you prefer. As for the arugula, you can substitute it with lettuce.
