We eat a lot of Bánh mì  sammies in our house and they always seem to become more of a frequent flyer once the Spring and Summer months push through. Maaayybbeee that has to do with how perfect they are to enjoy in the park or on the beach – just sayin’. This Vietnamese treat is super easy to throw together and never shuts a party down.

In fact.. this sandwich is a party animal (insert: confetti canon).

Tofu, chicken, pickled cauliflower, there are endless limits to creating the perfect fiesta between a sliced baguette – but this particular Bahn Mi recipe is the stead-fast classic guaranteed to get you started off on track.

 Here’s to a beautiful weekend layered high with deliciousness.
