Warm weather is finally back after a long winter. Nothing makes you crave a sandwich quite like warm weather. There’s something about the sunshine and blooming flowers that makes a fresh sandwich filled with crisp veggies sound like the perfect meal! The same old sandwiches can get boring, but these spring sandwiches will help you change up the routine while still being health conscious.
Asparagus and Goat Cheese
Asparagus might not be your first thought to put on a sandwich, but this recipe combines cooked and raw asparagus with perfectly aged goat cheese and fresh avocado to create a springtime masterpiece. The recipe calls for French baguette, but you could opt for Italian ciabatta to really make it pop!
Sourdough bread, hummus, and crushed red pepper are combined with carrots and a handful of other ingredients in this sandwich for a flavor packed bite every time. Green yogurt and cilantro are used to top it all off. The combination of lightly cooked carrots and creamy hummus is definitely different from a typical boring sandwich!
Veggie with Dill Sauce
Who says you have to eat meat to enjoy a great sandwich? This veggie sandwich with dill sauce is filling and satisfying with no meat needed. The veggies include lettuce, tomato, avocado, alfalfa sprouts, red onion, cucumber, and tomato. Fresh dill is combined with Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard to create a savory dill sauce that perfectly compliments the stack of veggies over multigrain bread.
Cheesy Bacon Melts
These cheesy bacon melts aren’t quite as healthy as an all veggie sandwich, but they do taste amazing on a warm spring day! The addition of fresh watercress and gruyére cheese is what really makes this sandwich unique. Garlic, red wine vinegar, and Dijon mustard perfectly compliment the savory bacon and cheese. Pumpernickel bread is recommended, but this combination would taste great on almost any type of sandwich bread!
Chickpeas, fennel, capers, and other bold ingredients combined and put into hollowed out rolls are one of the best spring sandwiches around. Spring allows for the freshest information too, so it will taste even better! This is a fun twist on a traditional salade niçoise recipe you may have tried before.
