Assembly:

  1. Spread about a tablespoon of the aioli on each of the green onion cakes.
  2. On one of the green onion cakes place 4 slices of Havarti on the aioli, then 5 slices of bacon, followed by the butter leaf lettuce, arugula, and mizuna greens.
  3. Top that with the sliced tomato and another 5 slices of Havarti. Place the other green onion cake ontop of the aioli, side down.
  4. garnish with some of the mizuna greens a a few drops of the aioli, cut in half and serve.

Enjoy!

Notes

  1. If you can't find the Mizuna microgreens use what you have or can find.
  2. Remember to heat the oil and water together with the green onion cake. This is very important.
  3. Use nice ripe tomatoes but not too ripe.
