What Makes It Great: The satisfying snap of quick-pickled squash plays well with creamy-smoky red bell pepper mayo, peppery arugula, and savory chicken. Use a mandoline to get perfectly uniform, thin slices of squash. Or for delicate squash ribbons, shave the squash lengthwise with a vegetable peeler.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine vinegar, 1/4 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt, sugar, and thyme in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until salt and sugar dissolve. Pour hot mixture over squash in a bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain.

Step 2

Combine mayonnaise and next 4 ingredients (through almonds) in a mini food processor; process until smooth. Set sauce aside.

Step 3

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken evenly with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done.

Step 4

Spread about 2 tablespoons sauce on bottom half of each roll. Top each with one chicken cutlet, about 1/3 cup squash, 1/2 cup arugula, and top half of roll.
