Sandwich King Jeff Mauro's Top-5 Healthy Sandwich Toppings
Jeff shared with his his favorite high-flavor, low-guilt sandwich toppings:
2) Honey Dijon Mustard: No fat, all flavor. Its sweetness pairs well with any type of brined vegetable, like pickled jalapenos.
3) Cherry Pepper Relish: Less heat, more sweetness; gives your sandwich an edge without many calories.
4) Roasted Tomatoes: Drained and seeded canned whole tomatoes, tossed with a little salt, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and olive oil and roasted on a pan at 400 degrees until carmalized and slightly dried out. Amazing blast of tangy tomato-y flavor.
5) Reduced Balsamic Vinaigrette (aka King Juice): Curb the olive oil and lessen the fat -- a dose of this and maybe a little mustard, or mixed into some mayonnaise -- it's a killer sandwich spread.

Heat balsamic in heavy-bottomed sauce pan over medium heat. Dump the other ingredients into the sauce pan, stir well and bring to a steady simmer, stirring frequently. When liquid reduces by 50%, take off heat and cool. Strain with fine mesh strainer into a clean bowl. Store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 2 months.
*Make sure you have proper ventilation; this stuff is pretty pungent.
