Totally Addictive Vegetable Sandwiches

This is my favorite sandwich of the month. Or of the year. I usually use more or less the same ingredients each time, but the option of adding just about any other vegetable you want is always there.

Totally Addictive Vegetable Sandwiches

2 slices Home made bread
mayonaise (or mayonaise mixed with yogurt)
1 tomato or several slices of cucumber
finely chopped onion
finely chopped red pepper
very finely chopped jalapeƱo pepper
lots of roughly chopped cilantro
salt and pepper
balsamic vinegar

1. Spread mayonaise on both slices of home made bread.
2. On one side, cover bread with chopped onion, sweet pepper and jalapeno pepper.
3. On the other side, fill bread slice with fat slices of tomato.
4. Salt and pepper (freshly ground goes without saying)
5. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro to taste (I use lots of it in place of lettuce which is not really good here)

6. Sprinkle tomatoes with balsamic vinegar.
7. Press chopped vegies into the mayo with the flat of a knife, and quickly, so the small pieces don't fall off, put that slice of bread over the tomatoes.
8. Cut into 2 or 4 pieces (I find them easier to eat if they are in 4 pieces) and enjoy!!

The Verdict:

I love these Totally Addictive Vegetable Sandwiches, and often eat them for breakfast, varying the tomato for thick slices of cucumber and adding sprouts when I have them. My favorite part is the burst of different flavors each time your teeth come together as you crunch into the variety of chopped vegetables. The only downside is the time it takes to chop all those vegies .. but its worth it :>)
