Squaw bread is a beautiful thing. Dark and rich, it's typically made with unbleached, whole wheat and rye flours, yeast, milk, butter and not much else. My latest purchase of a loaf came from The Breadman, an L.A. based bakery that specializes in all natural artisan breads and pastries. They add a tiny bit of honey and brown sugar to create just the slightest hint of sweetness to the taste.
It is the bed of choice for one of my favorite sandwiches that includes all the right textural ingredients for a blissful mouthful. Creamy, crunchy, and popping with bursts of juice!
Sinless Squaw Sandwich
Cut two slices of squaw bread from a fresh loaf about half an inch thick.
Spread a layer of lowfat ricotta cheese on one slice.
Spread half of a soft avocado on the other slice.
Stud the ricotta layer with sliced, ripe cherry tomato halves.
Grab a handful of leafy artisanal lettuces and pile on the avocado side.
Salt and pepper to your liking and fold together.
