A Note From feedfeed

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 this Grinder Sandwich. The "Grinder Salad" that goes on top of delicious meats and cheeses is so good, 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 thin. It can get a little messy, but I envsion myself packing up this sandwich for beach and pool days all summer long.
