As an afterthought to the panini feast I had planned for Mother’s Day Brunch, I threw together a few cold sandwiches. I did this mostly as a hasty bargain for time so I could get away from the panini press long enough to put clothes on before guests arrived. I rounded up what I could find in my kitchen and piled it on some leftover bread. The result was fresh and bright, simple and surprisingly satisfying. Those unassuming little morsels of vegetarian goodness were a hit, even with my extremely carnivorous family! I had to make them again, pronto.
Give this sandwich a try for lunch with a handful of salt & vinegar chips or for dinner alongside a hot bowl of cauliflower & cheddar soup. It’s also a fantastic midnight snack after an evening of beer drinking and music making!
- 4 kaiser rolls or an equivalent mass of bread-like vehicles
- 1 small cucumber, sliced
- 1 large handful of lettuce, salad mix, spinach, arugula or something similar
- 4 oz. hummus
- 8 oz. Greek yogurt & feta spread*
GREEK YOGURT & FETA SPREAD
- 6 oz. plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 5 sundried tomatoe strips, chopped
- 2 oz. crumbled feta cheese
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 hearty squirt of fresh lemon juice
- dried oregano, basil, thyme & black pepper to taste
Stir everything together in a bowl and season to taste.
Prepare the spread, slice the bread, and slather one side of each sandwich with tangy, Greek goodness and the other side with hummus.
I have faith that you could take it from here on your own, but in case you like instagrams as much as I do…
arrange your cucumber slices on one side (for whatever reason, I prefer to do my building on the Greek side),
top with lettuce,
and put a lid on it!
