When I think of strawberries, I think of Watsonville, California. There are fields full of these luscious berries for as far as the eye can see. And maybe this is completely nerdy, but I check to see if my strawberries came from Watsonville before I buy them. I swear, they taste better.
Today’s sandwich is totally refreshing. Cooling cucumber, rich avocado, sweet strawberry come together with a tangy tarragon mayonnaise. It’s like a spa day for your mouth.
A dagwood is a multilayered sandwich with varying meats, condiments and vegetables. In this case, I swapped out the meat for fruit. For a variation, add kosher dill pickles, instead of English cucumber or add a slice or two of vegan cheese. While my husband eats it with all three layers intact, I like to eat two layers together, and the last layer alone.

½ cup vegan mayonnaise

1. Mix everything listed under “Tarragon Mayonnaise” in a small bowl. Try not to overmix or it may become runny. Taste, and adjust seasonings.
