Heirloom Carrot Sandwich & The Oakhurst Market

Okay. First off, I am so darn excited about the Oakhurst Market opening right around the corner! I have visions of walking (WALKING!) to the market every few days to pick up FRESH local produce and meat for our meals. I even go so far to envision myself in a big straw hat with a floppy straw bag at my side.

The market is really a quality mini grocery with wine, beer, fresh bread, fresh baked goods (peanut butter cookies stuffed with peanut butter cream), ice cream, a candy shop, and will eventually have growlers and sandwiches available. I keep pinching myself to make certain I am not dreaming,

Anyway, today I picked up some wonderful local heirloom carrots which were used in this sandwich, a family favorite on a hot day. The heirlooms definitely added a more flavorful twist. Yum.

Heirloom Carrot Sandwich
· Shredded carrot
· Sliced pickles (I had some cucumbers that I quick pickled)
· Swiss cheese
· Mayo
Put it all together on some good bread and eat. Works best if you apply the carrot directly to the mayo.
