Not all sandwiches are created equal. Some are double, and others are triple, like in Peru. Like many other staples in Peruvian cuisine, the sandwich triple relies on the abundance of local fresh ingredients. It requires ripe avocados, a layer of eggs or chicken (or both), and the third layer of sliced tomatoes to add freshness to the taste. Making this sandwich is not only quick and easy but super fun, too!
- 16 slices of white bread (crust removed)
- 2 to 3 ripe avocados
- 2 tomatoes, very thinly sliced
- 1 lime
- ¾ cup chicken salad, egg salad, or just sliced hard-boiled eggs
- ¼ cup mayonnaise, or to taste
How to Prepare Sandwich Triple, Peruvian Style
Start with the avocados. Slice them as thinly as you can and drizzle lime juice on top. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the tomatoes, and trim the crusts from the bread.
It’s time to assemble your sandwich triple. Take a slice of bread and spread mayonnaise on top. Then, layer avocado slices and top with another slice of bread that has mayonnaise on both sides. Arrange the middle section of the sandwiches by spreading the chicken or egg salad or just the sliced hard-boiled eggs. Add another slice of bread.
Spread the tomato slices on top and place the last slice of bread. Push down gently. Cut the sandwiches into triangles, and serve your sandwich triple, Peruvian style.
You can have these delicious sandwiches for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon snacks, or dinner. They are the perfect party snack for movie nights and casual gatherings, and they only take about ten minutes to prepare. Feel free to switch up the order of layers to your liking. You can add chili flakes and other improvements to better suit your taste. Sky’s the limit!
Tennis Star Naomi Osaka Wore a Special Dress at the Met Gala
The 23-year-old Naomi Osaka debuted on the red carpet of this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. The tennis star was a co-chair of fashion’s biggest night and wore a striking dress from Louis Vuitton. She walked with the creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere and her older sister and retired tennis pro – Mari Osaka.
Naomi Osaka Always Wanted to Come to the Met Gala and Experience It to the Fullest
The Osaka sisters and Nicholas Ghesquiere arrived together because they had all helped accomplish the athlete’s colorful look. Vogue called it the boldest and most thrilling style statement the tennis star had made so far. Apparently, Mari and Naomi Osaka share a passion for fashion and designing. According to Naomi, her dress had a special meaning because it hinted at her Japanese heritage with its Koi fish imagery.
To Naomi Osaka, American Means a Mix of All Cultures
As she shared upon her arrival, Naomi’s dress and look represented her two backgrounds, American and Japanese. The tennis star was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and a Haitian father. She moved to the United States when she was just three years old. According to her sister, the design of Naomi’s dress fitted with the theme of the event, which was In America: A Lexicon of Fashion.
Mari Osaka further commented that the dress celebrates who all Americans are and how they all play a role in the American Dream. She also pointed out that it was a celebration of cultures that add unique elements to the melting pot that is America. Wearing a Louis Vuitton dress was not unexpected for Naomi Osaka because, as one of the biggest athletes in the world, she did promotional campaigns for the French fashion house earlier this year. She also sported the brand during the ESPY Awards this July.
Osaka is among the world’s most marketable athletes and has been ranked eighth in endorsement income for athletes in 2020. That year, she also became the highest-earning female athlete of all time for annual income. In addition to a huge fan base, Osaka has also gained significant recognition as an activist.
