With the growing number of consumers adopting vegetarian or even vegan diets, McAlister’s Deli's new meatless Chimichurri Sandwich is sure to be a popular dish. While it may look like just another deli sandwich, this new offering is completely meat-free.

The Chimichurri Sandwich is a brand-new offering from McAlister’s Deli and the chain's first-ever plant-based protein sandwich. Keeping in line with the deli's other offerings, the sandwich contains a slice of plant-based, chimichurri marinated protein, which is paired with balsamic onions, provolone cheese, tomato, spring mix, and chimichurri aioli. The whole thing is served on a toasted ciabatta bun, making it just as hearty as some of the meatier deli sandwiches.

The sandwich is currently being tested at seven locations in Chicago and seven locations in Knoxville, so you may have to take a little road trip to try it.
