HOW DO YOU PREVENT A SANDWICH FROM BECOMING SOGGY?
- Spread your bread with vegan butter (or spread), mayo or mustard. This will provide a bit of a barrier.
- Make sure if you rinse your salad, you dry it well.
- Make salad leaves your second layer, they will also help provide a wall between the bread and the filling. Remember to add it on top of the filling too, to protect the other slice of bread.
- If your sandwich has quite a wet filling, you can take the filling in a separate container and put it together at lunchtime.
- Let any cooked or grilled ingredients cool completely before adding to your sandwich.
- You can also toast your bread before you make your sandwich, but let the toasted bread cool first.
- Make sure it is securely wrapped.
