My favorite lunch is a tie between a salad and a sandwich.

A salad is great because it's light, but can be chock full of protein, nutrients, and other delicious little morsels to hold you over throughout the workday.

Sandwiches, on the other hand, come in limitless forms.

You can have wheat bread, white bread, a potato roll, on a ciabatta, on a bagel, wrapped in lettuce, and of course, you have a wide array of toppings.

You can go PB&J, Reuben, a Rachel, turkey, pastrami, roast beef, grilled or fried chicken.

The combinations are truly endless.

One thing that they all have in common though is that they're on some type of bread.

I went to a restaurant over the weekend, Castaway's Pub in Lavalette, and the sandwich I had was decent but what really set it apart was the French Baguette roll they used.

Bread or a roll can make or break a sandwich, so imagine my surprise when I saw that there is a restaurant in Haddon Township that makes a good-looking sandwich that uses a very unique bread/roll substitute.

Now, what's neat is that they cater to the keto/gluten-free crowd as well as the typical adventurous eater.

The restaurant has actually been around for a few years, and I'm curious if you've been there and what you thought about this one-of-a-kind take on a lunchtime staple.

It's called Peace Love and Pickles, and instead of bread, they use pickles as the base for their sandwiches.

Now, when I was a kid I loved a place growing up called the Pickle Barrel because it was a deli that had a huge pickle bar you could graze on while you waited for your food.

But is a pickle as the 'bread' part of a sandwich too much pickle?

According to reviews, it's not!

I'll throw a pickle on a burger, maybe on the occasional BLT (weird combo I know) but will always eat those things on a roll or bread, I feel like a pickle roll might be overkill.

Then again, pickles have a really crispy exterior and may add a pleasant crunch to the sandwich.

Typically I'll try anything once, so Peace Love and Pickles will be added to my ever-expanding list of unique New Jersey food stops I need to make.

If you're interested in trying a pickle sandwich, Peace Love and Pickles is located at 803 White Horse Pike in Haddon Township.
