As much as I love chicken salad and roast beef sandwiches, sometimes a veggie sandwich is just so refreshing! I find they are especially nice on warm, hot summer days. They are great for variety too, because there are so many options. I like to pack mine up with as many veggies as I can fit into it. I will share what this yummy sandwich is made with, and give you a list of options for your preferences.
I try to use what I have on hand (this sandwich is an example), but for a great mix of flavors, you can also think of different common food combinations and try to incorporate that into your sandwich. For example, you can make a Greek One with feta cheese, olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, and lettuce (this would be especially good in pita breads). A simple Italian one could be mozzarella cheese, topped with basil and tomatoes, fried in a pan with a little oil on the stove top.
You can also slice up all the veggies, cheeses and put out different spreads and have people make their own sandwiches at an informal gathering. It’s fun and a great way to eat your vegetables.
