Sometimes, when its hot and I really can’t even begin to even dream about turning on my oven, or burners… I make a sandwich.
Before I went vegetarian, back when facebook was the not as cool version of myspace and twitter didn’t even exist (boy, how times have changed. ha!), I never understood the concept of a veggie sandwich. Like, what was in the middle if there isn’t any meat?
Today, I am older and (somewhat… maybe) wiser. Cucumbers are my meat. Or at least they were in this sandwich. I love cucumbers and copious amounts of lettuce and WAY too much sauce if I can get it. In short, veggie sandwiches are a great summer-time staple that you can easily change-up based on your own likes.
Here’s how I made mine:
Ok, so maybe the color of this spread doesn’t look so great photographed. But this was really really yummy! All I did was combine a pre-made basil pesto sauce with a couple handfuls of sun-dried tomatoes and ta-da!: tomato basil pesto is born.
And thank you.
(See what I did there? That’s internet sarcasm.)
You thought it was feta didn’t you? Gottcha.
This was actually my first time to try a goat cheese and I really loved it. It did sort of look like feta but it has this softer, melt-in-your-mouth quality to it. So, like, uh… yum!
I mean, that’s a lot of bread. Dude. I like to save a little room. You never know when an ice cream opportunity may come your way. You don’t want to be unprepared. Just in case.
What’s your favorite sandwich fillers? I would love to branch out and try a few new sandwich combinations this summer so I’d love to hear your favs.
