Sweet Onion Teriyaki Sandwich Dressing

September 27, 2012

1/8 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 TBSP cider vinegar
1 TBSP white distilled vinegar
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp powdered buttermilk
1 TBSP onion powder
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 C. corn syrup

I toss everything in a small saucepan and cook it a bit to help everything blend together.

And this is what I toss inside the sandwich(use your gluten free bread of choice)
*Chicken(a few nice thick chunks or slices, I found some decent gluten free fajita meat that worked great)
*a couple slices of cheese, I used jack
(I toss the sauce, cheese and chicken on the bread and toast it to melt the cheese)
*cucumber
*black olives
*tomatoes
*green bell pepper
*lettuce
*mild banana peppers(the mild ones are not very spicy and make a great addition to the sandwich, my wife doesn’t like things like this normally, but she won’t leave them off the sandwich now)
