  • 4 ounces hot pepper jack cheese, sliced thin
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon wasabi powder
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 teaspoon tamari
  • Pinch of salt
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste


  1. In a small bowl, mix the wasabi powder and water together until well blended. Whisk in the mayo, tamari, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Set aside for a few minutes to let the flavors blend.

Serving Suggestion

Brown-bagging it? Make the wasabi mayo the night before. Leftover wasabi mayo can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days; use it to spice up a tuna or chicken salad.
