Breadless Sandwiches

It was bound to happen sooner or later. The breadless sandwich has arrived at Waitrose. OK, they’re really a salad, but packaged in such a way that you can hold them like a sandwich. These are ideal for dieters or those looking to reduce their carbohydrate intake as each one averages around 100 calories.

There are two types: the Cos lettuce ‘sandwich’ and open lettuce boats.

The lettuce sandwich consists of Cos lettuce leaves wrapped around either chicken & mango or feta cheese together with cucumber, red onion and pepper.

The open lettuce boats can be picked up and eaten like an open sandwich and they have a choice of two toppings: sweet chilli chicken or oriental king prawn with a sachet of sauce. They’re also mixed with rice noodles, so you’re getting a small amount of carbohydrates, and crunchy vegetables (carrot & courgette). Each are served in a plastic container with a plastic knife and fork.

They taste fantastic, really flavoursome and spicy even before adding the sauce. They're also surprisingly filling. Each pack provides 1 of your 5 a day and they can be found in branches of Waitrose.
