Open-Faced Nova Sandwich with Roasted Asparagus, Cream Cheese, Arugula, Tomato & Onion February 7, 2012

Jamie says: When nova salmon went on sale at Publix last week, I instantly picked up a pack and added it to my cart. I knew it would go to good use…

I made this Open-Faced Nova Sandwich with Roasted Asparagus, Cream Cheese, Arugula, Tomato & Onion for a nice afternoon lunch, but I could see at being served for a brunch party, too.

An awesome breakfast, lunch, or brunch

I loved the addition of roasted asparagus. It was slightly crispy and added so much flavor.

Roasting asparagus makes it taste fabulous

Usually, I enjoy nova/lox on a bagel, but it was delicious on the whole grain bread, too!

A switch-up from your typical sandwich
