sandwich using seasonal produce

fresh summer produce sandwichI am so enjoying the wonderful summer produce showing up on the grocery shelves, roadside stands and farmers markets this time of year. So I’ve decided to take a moment andfarmers market produce share one of my favorite, easy, delicious sandwiches; it’s healthy to boot!

 

Tomato, cucumber, pesto sandwich:

  • Hearty grain, artisanal bread (I always slice it myself)
  • Beautiful heirloom tomato (sliced)
  • Fresh spinach
  • Pesto (freshly made or store-bought)
  • Cream cheese
  • Cucumber (peeled and sliced)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt (I love, love, love coarsely ground, pink, Himalayan salt)

Heat olive oil in skillet and grill the sliced bread on both sides to a light brown,

Generously spread cream cheese on one slice of grilled bread and pesto on a second,

On one of the slices of bread, layer with the sliced tomato and cucumbers,

 Sprinkle with salt,

Add a layer of spinach,

Top with the second piece of bread,

Enjoy!
