Toast Mussels, Mayonnaise & Chili Paste

An easy lunch idea: Mussels in a spicy mayonnaise! In the Netherlands we love to eat our bread or toasts with a ‘salad’. This salad is not a green salad, but it is a mix of vegetables or meat & mayonnaise. Since Mussels are sustainable and full of protein, I made this spicy Mussel ‘Salad’. However, do you have any leftover meat or chicken? Use that instead of the mussels. Serve this lunch recipe with carrots, parsley & some finely grated lemon zest.
