Three Cheese Veggie Sandwich

Three Cheese Veggie Sandwich

This is a hearty vegetarian sandwich that's packed with flavor. It is absolutely satisfying. You can make your own pesto or use your favorite store-bought version.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 8 slices seeded or multigrain bread, toasted
  • 1 cup Sun-Dried Tomato and Walnut Pesto
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced into 1/8-inch-thick rounds
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, for seasoning
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 cup alfalfa or green leaf sprouts
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

Directions

  • Arrange the toast slices in a single layer on a work surface. Spread 2 tablespoons of the Sun-Dried Tomato and Walnut Pesto on each slice of bread. On 4 of the slices, arrange the cucumber in a single layer, covering as much of the bread as possible, and season with just a pinch of salt and pepper. Place a slice each of provolone, cheddar, and Swiss cheese on top of the cucumber. Divide the avocado slices evenly among the sandwiches and season with salt and pepper. Spread 2 tablespoons of the sun-dried tomatoes evenly over the avocado.

  • In a small mixing bowl, toss the sprouts with the olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread 1/4 cup of the sprouts over the tomatoes on each sandwich. Complete the sandwiches with the remaining slices of toast.
