A Sandwich for Summer☀️

Summer is here! I am more than ready for lots of sun and sand. My tastebuds are going crazy for the tastes that come with summer. Fresh strawberries, blueberries and melons, a refreshing glass of lemonade and barbecues. The tastes of summer never get old, that’s for sure. A few years ago, I stumbled across this recipe for a sandwich that emulates summer in every aspect. It’s so robust in flavor with a refreshing crunch included. Check it out, I’ve included the recipe and a “How-To Build” guide for this incredible sandwich!

INGREDIENTS
• Sourdough loaf
• Alfalfa Sprouts
• Carrots
• Cucumber
• Tomato
• Hummus
• Guacamole
• Slice of cheese

PREP
• Toast your slices of sourdough, if you don’t like sourdough bread then a whole grain or multigrain would be just as good.
• Slather hummus to one piece of toast and guacamole to the second piece of toast. I always go overboard with hummus and guac because I absolutely love both of them. Set one piece aside so you don’t end up loading both pieces of toast with condiments and make it too difficult to put your sandwich together.
• Slice up the cucumber tomato
• Using a peeler, make long slices of carrot
• Open your slice of cheese

DIRECTIONS
Piece together your sandwich however you please! My choice order of everything goes something like this: toast 1 with hummus, cucumber, cheese, sprouts, carrots, tomato, toast 2 with guacamole. ENJOY!

On Thursday, June 14th and Friday, June 15th, 2018, Gardner-White recruiters will be doing on-the-spot hiring at ALL Gardner-White locations throughout metro Detroit. If you have experience, skill, drive and a desire to be part of a winning and growing team with room for advancement in the future – come join our family and be a part of the only real hometown team!

Gardner-White Furniture was founded in 1912 as a place where customers could find great styles at a great value.  More than a century later, Gardner-White is the only family owned and operated home furnishings business serving the Metro Detroit market!  We are a nimble organization and have a lot of industry firsts to our name.  We lead the industry in bedding sales, in sales-per-square-foot, and in sales associate pay.

Gardner-White is also a leader in the community, partnering with terrific organizations like COTS, Humble Design, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, Volunteers for America, and many others, to keep improving the metro Detroit community. Beyond working with and supporting these great partners, last year Gardner-White provided 1,000 mattresses to children in need in preparation for the school year.

With just over 500 employees and an average tenure of 20 years, Gardner-White has a stellar reputation for providing extensive training and mentoring.  The idea behind this is to prepare our team members that with our growth and success, comes promotion opportunities from within the company.  Gardner-White has created a training and succession plan for our warehouse staff members.
