GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) - Summer is here and that means barbecues and picnics. Kick off the season of al fresco dining this Memorial Day weekend by trying a new recipe, my grilled vegetable sandwich with horseradish sauce (v/gf). Stack it high and let the sauce runnith over. It will satisfy even the hardiest appetites. Hot off the grill or pulled from a picnic basket, this recipe is a proven winner.
For over 20 years, this sandwich has been on our summertime menu. It's a delicious way to celebrate and enjoy the abundance of fresh vegetables and herbs that Michigan's growing season brings us. Happy Memorial Day.
