Recipe Intro From cathstable

Sometimes, when recipes go viral on Instagram or TikTok, it's kinda like, "why?" Let me be the first to tell you: this is not the case with the recent Grinder Sandwich trend. The "Grinder Salad" that goes on tops off delicious meats and cheeses is so good that I've been eating it on its own. Feel free to play around with what meats and cheeses you use, but do not sleep on the bold flavors in the Grinder Salad. Grab a good quality mayo (I used Duke's) and slice your iceberg lettuce niiice and thi n. It can get a little messy, but I envsion myself packing up this sandwich for beach and pool days all summer long.
