The open face sandwich is the convertible of sandwiches – take the top off, and you’re in for a better ride. They’re also an easy way to eliminate empty carbs while enjoying your favourite one-handed lunch.

  • 1 tbsp mayo or ranch dressing
  • 1 chopped stick celery
  • 1 tbsp raisins (dried cranberries also work)
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • 1 slice of whole grain bread
  • A handful of greens (arugula, spinach, or mixed greens do the trick)


  1. Combine mayo and chicken pieces
  2. Add curry powder and mix
  3. Add celery, raisins and mix
  4. Spoon onto bread, add greens on top – and you’re ready to eat!
