It’s been a while since we’ve been to the Morris Truck, but it was too hot for grilled cheese, so I was hoping they would have one of their cold summer sandwiches.
The menu at the Morris Truck rotates, with certain items appearing more regularly…and I was in luck.
They had a cold feta with summer squash sandwich. Although the bread was grilled, the filling was cold. That’s what I call the best of both worlds.
The sandwich was served on 7-grain bread, but I’ll have to take their word for it. I didn’t actually count the grains. It toasted up real nice, and was strong enough to hold chunky veggies without a problem.
Inside the sandwich the feta came through nicely, but what really stood out was the lemon vinaigrette. There was a tartness that went well with the summer squash, which is not the lightest of vegetables.
There were also toasted pine nuts, which imparted a nutty flavor and some crunch. Oh, I almost forgot, there were a nice amount of herbs in the sandwich too.
This was a very good summer sandwich for a 90 degree-plus day.
Morris Truck also has a menu of house-made fresh sodas for $3. They have soda flavors like yuzu ginger and strawberry tarragon, but I had to go with the one called Milk of the Poppy, which I understand is from the Game of Thrones.
This was a very refreshing drink with milk, vanilla syrup, poppy seeds, and a little carbonation from seltzer. Yes, it was basically a vanilla egg cream. I’m normally partial to chocolate egg creams, but on a day like today, vanilla was lighter and more appropriate for the weather.
