The acidity from the lemon based vinaigrette used in the chiffonade adds a cleansing element and helps to lighten the sandwich a bit, while the smokiness from the chipotle dressing just adds a bit more complexity to the dish and helps to elevate the different yet simple ingredients used. This sandwich is ANYTHING but basic.
