This may be one of the strangest combinations I’ve ever posted on this site.

 But I want you to trust me when I say, it’s actually really, really good.

The awesome combination of pickled onions and honey-lime dressing make this sandwich (and frankly, I would have never thought to put all that together).

 This sandwich is actually inspired by my trip to Indianpolis way back in the early days of summer (more specifically my trip to Duos Indy food truck).  Sonja and Alex gave me a great list when I was exploring the city and Duos is where they told me to go for lunch.  I had one of the best sandwiches that day.

I’ve been thinking about that sandwich all summer.  This sandwich is also a big part as to why I have jars (many jars) of onion relish canned in my basement.

 This sandwich is more of a guidance.  If you click over to the Indy post, you can see exactly what they had on their sandwich.  I added hummus for a little extra protein to the sandwich but can always be replaced with some smeared avocado (yum)!

(Ps- if you are ever in Indy and are looking for lunch, Duos gets two thumbs up from me!)
