The official description for this sandwich is –
"Pastrami, Emmental and mustard dressing, spinach, gherkins, sauerkraut on rye bread""No mayo" boasts the packet of this low fat sandwich from Marks & Spencer. That's no bad thing – I don't regard mayonnaise as the evil the calorie-counters do, but regular readers will know I deplore the overmayonation which blights so many of the sandwiches we buy.
Unfortunately, when M&S took out the mayonnaise, they also took out the flavour. This recipe promised so much – I had expected the mustard dressing, the gherkins and the sauerkraut all to be strong-tasting and make their presence known, but sadly it wasn't to be.
I am hesitant to say that this disappointing blandness is simply a feature of "low fat" recipes which is simply to be expected, as I don't think generalisations are helpful in reviewing sandwiches, but if this example is representative of the genre then the outlook is not good. I shall try not to let this prejudice me, and put me off trying other calorie-conscious sandwiches, but I shan't be buying this particular sandwich again.
