Deliciously Dairy-Free Daiya Slices Celebrate National Sandwich Day!

Posted on November 3, 2015

Here at Daiya, we firmly believe that every day should be Sandwich Day – but November 3 is apparently the day to celebrate one of the most popular hand-held meals around. And what better way to honor your favorite sandwich than by turning it into a deliciously dairy-free delight with the help of quick, easy and convenient Daiya Slices? Already sliced and ready to pair with your bread and other fillings, Daiya Slices are undoubtedly a sandwich’s best friend.

Here are some creative and tasty ways to use each flavor:

Dairy-Free Cheddar Style Slices

When you ask a group of people what their favorite type of cheese is, cheddar is always one of the first responses – and we’re proud to offer a dairy-free variety with the taste and texture of its dairy counterpart. Make the most of Daiya Cheddar Style Slices’s melty, gooey properties by using them in a hot Panini, like one of these:

Dairy-Free Swiss Style Slices

While it can certainly be used to make other things, Swiss cheese does seem specially built for sandwiches – and with good reason. The distinct flavor and texture pair well with fresh veggies and bold ingredients. For example, try:

open faced grilled cheese with tomato from above

Dairy-Free Provolone Style Slices

The mild, creamy flavor of provolone allows it to pair well with sweeter ingredients like jam or fresh fruit – and so it’s a wonderful cheese to choose when making a sandwich that bridges the gap between lunchtime and dessert. In particular, we’re loving these ideas:

two halves of vegan peach provolone grilled cheese stacked
