Need a sauce for this chicken sandwich

I am making a chicken sandwich with roasted red peppers, pepperjack, and avocado slices. What would make a good dressing for it? Some type of mayonnaise? Creamy pesto? Other?

Not sure what type of bread I'm putting it on...perhaps ciabatta.

Thanks!

You could make a nice vinaigrette with olive oil, lemon juice, a bit of Dijon mustard to bind it, and salt and pepper to taste. Whisk in a small bowl till it thickens. Or mayonnaise with lime juice and zest and a bit of sugar to balance the acid.

I like the idea of the lime juice and zest!

I would also add a teaspoon or two of curry powder and a good shot of cayenne pepper!

I have recently gotten hooked on a friends garlic mayo and it would go good with this sandwich.
1 cup of mayo
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp of garlic powder or 1 garlic clove minced
salt and pepper to taste.

That garlic mayo/ roasted garlic mayo sounds pretty good! I think I might try that! All the suggestions were excellent, however!

While I'm at it, what might be a good side? Steak fries? Macaroni salad? Other?

You guys and gals rock!
