What's in Henry's lunchbox today?
Not the usual leftover turkey sandwich, tuna or PBJ, but a vegetable sandwich!
My meat eating husband is loving vegetables these days. Go figure.
My girlfriends and I used to eat this sandwich at a place called C'est Cheese back in the 80's.
It was so yummy, served on marble rye with sprouts and herb mayo.
C'est Cheese Veggie Sandwich: makes 4 sandwiches
marble rye or whole grain bread slices
Hellman's real mayonnaise
1 cucumber, sliced paper thin
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1/4 red onion, shaved paper thin
bean sprouts (optional, but makes the sandwiches yummy)
Danish Havarti cheese w/ dill, sliced thin with a cheese slicer
Use about 2 slices of cheese per sandwich.
Start by swiping each slice of bread with mayo.
Layer one side w/ the sliced cucumber, then red pepper, onion, 2 slices of cheese, ending w/ the sprouts and topping with a second slice of bread.
The cukes and the red pepper are nice and crunchy and the dill in the Danish Havarti cheese pairs so nicely with the crisp vegetables.
P.S. don't forget the sliced pickle on the side!
