Guacamole in the Midwest


Jason's Deli is a typical lunch spot.  They've got soups, salads, sandwiches, the norm.  But there is one thing that sets them apart from the rest...The Garden Sandwich.  Organic field greens, cucumbers, red and yellow bell peppers, Asiago, balsamic vinaigrette, pico de gallo + GUACAMOLE!  What a great idea...guacamole on a sandwich.  Why didn't I think of that?  It adds so much flavor and a lovely creaminess.  Now maybe Jason's didn't exactly invent this concept, but it's the first guacamole sandwich I've ever encountered and I'm smitten.  (I order my sandwich sans Asiago).
Milio's is another sandwich shop in the Midwest that offers this versatile condiment on their veggie sandwich.

Quizno's has guac for their veggie sandwich in most of their chains. I think you have to leave the cheese and the pesto off, but it's pretty good.

That is really good to know...I just cannot get enough guacamole :)

not in Ohio i see, but working Milwaukee, i see there is one pretty close to me. is the guacamole vegan? lots of places cut perfectly good avocado with sour cream!

You know Brian, sometimes I completely forget that people add sour cream to guacamole. I'm waiting to receive 100% confirmation from Jason's but having eaten this sandwich many times, I'm pretty certain it's sour cream free. The consistency is chunky, not smooth like the kinds with sour cream usually are. However, I will let you know for sure when I hear from them! Thanks for the reminder!!!

ignorance is bliss sometimes :-) i was pretty bummed when i found out the veggie patties at subway were not vegan. somehow the veggie delight on its own was just not quite enough.

Isn't it though :)

I can't stand when I find vegetarian products that contain dairy, egg and/or honey. Companies would reach such a wider audience making their products vegan.

I really think to make vegan sandwiches you've got to get creative...veggies on bread just are NOT very appetizing by themselves :) Even with vinaigrette, I still need something more!

Great news...Jason's guacamole is vegan! Only avocados, onions, lemon juice and spices. And they replied so quickly to my inquiry...that never happens :)
