i am a vegetarian, and i am constantly on the lookout for really good meat-less sandwiches. so when i saw this recipe on lifeflix and read that it was supposedly the best sandwich EVER, i was really excited to try it out.
2 slices of oat nut bread (whole foods brand) toasted
handful of mixed greens
slices of red bell pepper
thinly sliced cucumber (skin on)
sliced tomatoes (seasoned with salt + pepper)
sliced swiss cheese or whatever cheese you like
honey mustard dressing*
salt & pepper
1/4 cup quality extra virgin olive oil
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 to 1 tsp sugar
1/2 pinch of black pepper
1/2 tbs water (tap)
*optional tiny squeeze of fresh lemon juice
mix everything but the olive oil. while mixing with a fork or a small whisk, drizzle in the olive oil into your vinegar mixture. taste and season according to taste.
mix equal parts yellow mustard + honey
putting it all together:
prepare both dressings.
toast bread. they highly recommend the whole foods nut oat bread (green bag). in the meantime, cut all your veggies.
spread mayo on both slices of bread (one side only). spread about a teaspoon or so of the honey mustard dressing (both slices) on top of the mayo. layer one side with the cucumber slices, then the peppers, tomatoes and mixed greens. slowly drizzle balsamic vinaigrette over the mixed greens OR you can toss the greens with dressing in a separate bowl. top with cheese and the other slice of bread. that’s it!
my verdict? delicious!!! the dressings blend perfectly and the sandwich is as fresh as a bite out of spring!
