Can you think of a better way to enjoy summer than enjoying a lovely picnic outdoors while enjoying something like this Summer Veggie Sandwich?
There are a few tips and tricks to make an outstanding veggie sandwich. There are definitely a few must-haves to make your sandwich amazing. I'll start with the cheese because, after all, who doesn't love cheese? I am super fond of the extra thin slices of cheddar because I love the way they taste but you can also put the exact amount you want on your sandwich. The next thing I recommend is a good spread. You can always use the basics - mayo and/or mustard, but you can't beat the flavor of a scratch made aioli. I also highly recommend both avocado and cucumber. The avocado combined with the cheese gives your sandwich a rich creaminess that is downright necessary. The cucumber adds a nice fresh crunch. Tomato is a given - that should be no surprise there. My other sandwich favorite is fresh sprouts. I grew up eating alfalfa sprouts, but they're not always easy to find these days. You can, however, usually find some kind of microgreen either packaged up or still living. These happen to be radish sprouts that were sold still growing. They add the perfect texture and taste to this sandwich. Now, you can always add a few slices of turkey, ham, and/or bacon to your sandwich. In fact, I did that very same thing the next day when I made more sandwiches (we couldn't get enough because they were so good). Either way, the components of this sandwich bring out the very best of summer and make the perfect addition to any picnic. Enjoy!!!
