+

Sandwich

  • 4 each Pita Pockets, cut in half
  • 1 cup (85g) Baby Spinach

Preparation

  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot of water with enough water to cover the potatoes by about 1 inch. Bring the pot to a boil and reduce the temperature to a simmer. Allow the potatoes to cook for about 15-20 minutes or until they are fork tender but not falling apart.
  2. Drain the potatoes and place in a bowl, drizzle them with the vinegar and stir gently. Allow the potatoes to cool.
  3. To cook the eggs, place them in a medium size pot of boil water. Cook the eggs for 11 minutes, drain and immediately place them in a bowl of ice water. Peel the eggs and dice them into ½ inch pieces.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, curry powder, salt, sugar, and lemon juice.
  5. Add the potatoes, eggs, red onions, celery, green apple, currants, and cilantro. Gently stir the potato salad until everything is well combined and allow it to cool completely in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight.
  6. To build the sandwiches, place a bed of the spinach in the cavity of each pita bread. Spoon the curried potato salad into each sandwich and arrange on a serving platter along with an assortment of fresh vegetables for garnish.
  7. Serve right away and enjoy.
