Tomato cucumber Veggie Sandwich

Tomato cucumber Veggie Sandwich

Saturday and summertime what a great combination for a picnic or short trips. Plan to go on a trip and the first thing that comes to our mind is PICNIC FOOD that is quick and easy to prepare. What could be better than Tomato cucumber Veggie Sandwich – very filling tasty, healthy and full of flavor. A great summertime delicious sandwich! One of my family favorites.

I like to prepare the sandwiches right on the spot and for that I transfer the cut veggies in a separate container, butter in another and this way they taste crunchy, fresh and satisfying. Combination of cucumber and tomatoes complement each other perfectly.

FEW VARIATIONS – Very versatile sandwich; add or subtract ingredients according to your taste. 

  • I have used a mix of wheat and white bread but whole grain bread can also be used.
  • Use flavored cream cheese instead of butter for more flavor.
  • Add more raw veggies and make it a hearty veggie sandwich.
  • Add sprouts to bring the perfect crunch and texture! …yummm.
  • Like it toasted then toast the sandwiches.
  • Onions, green chutneys, lettuce can also be added for extra crunch.

A quick and easy sandwich that totally fits the bill when it comes to eating healthy and that too vegan!! Most of the time my go-to lunchtime sandwich.

    Visiting your site from Pinterest and must say its a masterpiece. Your work is commendable, mouthwatering pics and superb recipes. I made these sandwiches for lunch and they were so refreshing and fresh tasting. Only thing I changed was added 1/8 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning on each of my sandwiches and it hit the spot. Delicious and easy to follow recipe. Thanks for sharing and have a Ԍood Ԁay!

    Stumbled upon your website through a link and I am awestruck with what I am seeing. I am a huge Indian food fan and only reading the steps didn’t make a difference. You are taking Indian cooking to a whole new level for people like me. I just love it, my next recipe to try would be butter chicken. Looking forward to get my hands on it!!

    Love
    Everett
