The New Bistro Dagwood

I created this sandwich one day when I was looking to make an impressive sandwich for a lunch time event at my home. I started with the classic Dagwood, then “kicked it up a notch!” I sliced each sandwich in half and arranged them on a large serving platter. I love how every layer adds a different texture and taste. The sweet-tangy raspberry-basil-mustard is what brings it all together. If you’d like, you can garnish with fresh, whole raspberries.
