Everyday for lunch itâs the same old thingâ¦salad, salad, salad. I love salads, donât get me wrong. But day after day it is getting old (though I have lost weight and I attribute a lot of that to my daily healthy salad). Today, being Sunday, I thought Iâd try something different with my salad and boy did I hit the jackpot!! This sandwich is packed with good nutrition and has tons of flavor. Give it a try and tell me what you think. You could alter the veggies (shredded cucumber or zucchini for instance) or change the cheese (Feta or perhaps Boursin?). The opportunities are endless. I canât wait until tomorrowâs lunchâ¦Iâm trying this in a wrap!!
In a small bowl, add roughly â
cup of shredded carrots, â
cup shredded iceberg lettuce, Â¼ cup of very thinly sliced red onion and 5 sliced cherry tomatoes Add Â¼ cup of salad dressing (I made a quick version of my own dressing, but any store-bought dressing you like will work here). Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, toast your breadâgo healthy here: a good whole wheat or nut bread. NO white bread please! Once toasted, spread the bottom slice with a thick layer of humus and top with your vegetable mixture being careful not to pour the marinade on the sandwich as it will make it soggy. (I had a little vegetables left over too.) Slightly push the vegetables into the humusâit helps keep them in place. Next, place a thick piece of Cheddar cheese on top of the vegetables followed by 3 slices of avocado. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper (or, as I like to use on everything, Crazy Janeâs Mixed Up Salt). Top with your final slice of bread, slice in half and eat away!! Now thatâs a healthy sandwich!
