Roast Beef Sandwiches
with Garlic

Provence Sampler

Garlic mayonnaise, also called "aļoli," is easy to make and originated in Provence, France. Wedge sandwiches may be secured with short bamboo skewers, then wrapped in waxed paper for picnics.

Garlic Mayonnaise

1 teaspoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed in a garlic press
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


1 French bread round
1 pound thinly sliced roast beef
1 (2.25-ounce) can sliced black olives, drained
1 cup shredded medium cheddar cheese
1 cup thinly sliced iceberg lettuce


1.  Garlic mayonnaise: In a 10-inch frying pan, heat the oil and
     sauté the garlic for a few seconds.

2.  Place the garlic in a medium bowl. Stir in the mayonnaise,
     parsley and pepper.

3.  Sandwich: Slice the French bread round in half, horizontally.

4.  Spread the garlic mayonnaise on the cut side of bread half.

5.  Layer the roast beef, olives, cheese and lettuce twice on first
     bread half. Top with second bread half. Cut into wedges,
     wrap and refrigerate or serve immediately.

     Hint: These are fun to take on picnics or to take when you go
     hiking. Just wrap them in aluminum foil.

     Makes 6 servings


Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian;

Sour cream makes it Russian;
lemon and cinnamon makes it Greek.
Soy sauce makes it Chinese;
garlic makes it good.
