The Perfect Summer Lunch

This was my go-to sandwich last summer and I’ve been craving it again the last few weeks.  I have made this numerous times and just can’t get enough.  You can change out the veggies to please your palate.  If you pre-cut your veggies when you get home from the grocery store, this will come together in seconds.  And if not, it still only takes a few minutes.  I find it flavorful enough that you don’t need any special spreads or dressing, but hummus would be a great addition.  You could also add some mustard or vegan mayo if you wish.  Proof that eating healthly can be quick, delicious and beautiful!

The Perfect Summer Veggie Sandwich

1/2 avocado, smashed or cut into thin slices

1/2 carrot, shredded or shaved

1/4 sweet red pepper, sliced thin

4 or 5 thin slices of cucumber

2 leaves of Bibb lettuce (or spinach or kale or romaine, etc)

2 slices Ezekial Whole Wheat Bread (or your bread of choice), toasted

Layer up the ingredients on one slice of bread and top with the other slice.  Serve with some delicous summer fruit on the side.  Enjoy!

Once the radishes in my garden are ready to harvest, I will be adding those to this sandwich as well.  This would be perfect for a picnic on the go too!

Today, I used the same veggie ingredients, but opted for a spinach tortilla instead of bread.  So yummy!!
