I love the book Hope Was Here by Joan Bauer.
I wondered if the author had ever actually made the sandwich, or if it was just something she thought of in her head. But it sounded good to me, so I gave it a try. I couldn't find smoked turkey, so I used Roasted turkey slices from Costco. I also substituted a sourdough roll with a pretzel roll because that's what I had. You could use a bottle red wine vinaigrette or I've included a recipe for one here. I googled "red wine vinaigrette," then combined recipes that came up to make one that was just delicious.
Keep Hoping Sandwich
Chopped Salad Greens
Red Wine Vinaigrette (recipe below)
Maybe I didn't put on enough vinaigrette, but I thought it was too dry. I added mayonnaise, but other ideas would be softened cream cheese, butter, or you could add more dressing or even avocado to make it more moist.
The sun-dried tomatoes were good, but I was wishing they were dried cranberries to add a bit of sweetness. The fresh mozzarella was wonderful, and something I probably wouldn't have thought of.
Red Wine Vinaigrette
1 cup to 1 1/2 cups olive oil
1/3-1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon honey ( I put a bit more)
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (optional, but this helps it stay emulsified)
Crushed black pepper
Put all ingredients in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Shake vigorously. If you prefer, you can put everything but the oil in a blender. Turn on the blender and stream in the oil and blend until emulsified.
There are other sort of recipes in this book that I just may try, too.
