Summer Sandy with a Saison Vinaigrette

Summer Sandy with a Saison Vinaigrette

Need a little taste of Summer? Try out this mango-tomato-avocado-smoked salmon sandwich with a saison vinaigrette. To shorten this up a bit, we will just call it the Summer Sandy. It is all kinds of tropical and has that really good sweet and salty thing going on from the salmon and the fruits. Not only is the Summer Sandy light and tasty, its also packed with protein, whole grains, and fiber. You’ll feel like you can conquer the world after eating this creation. Bon appetit!




4 slices of whole grain bread

¼ cup diced heirloom tomato

¼ cup diced mango

½ tbsp red wine vinegar

½ avocado, sliced

3 oz. smoked salmon



3 tablespoons Wild Flowers Saison by Elevation Beer Company

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tsp lemon zest

1 tbsp minced shallot

1 tsp Dijon

½ tsp agave nectar

¼ tsp black pepper

½ tsp horseradish



Toast the bread. In one bowl, toss the diced tomato and mango in the red wine vinegar. In a separate bowl, combine the ingredients for the vinaigrette and whisk together. If you’re feeling lazy, you can use Brianna’s Dijon Honey Mustard as your sauce instead. The taste won’t be the same but it’s still delicious. Lay out the bread and get ready to stack it up. On two slices, place the sliced avocado. Next, lay out the smoked salmon on the other two pieces. Then, add half the mango/tomato mixture to each sandwich. Finally, spoonful some vinaigrette on top of that, put the two halves together, and eat!











Beer Pairing: Wild Flowers an Imperial Saison Ale by Elevation Beer Company

Since you will only be using a few spoonfuls of the beer in the recipe, you’ll have almost an entire bottle left to enjoy! As in their usual manner, Elevation Beer Co. pumped out yet another delicious creation. When the glass comes close to your mouth, you’ll notice floral aromas. The taste only has hints of roses with a more pronounced pepper and spice flavor and some citrus. Wild Flowers is not too sweet so it works well with the fruits in the sandwich instead of overpowering them.  The spices enhance the salmon and vinaigrette to complete an overall lovely beer pairing.
