A Delicious Vegetarian Sandwich For Your Late Summer Picnic

As summer heat begins to fade, the desire to enjoy a picnic in the great outdoors grows. Here is a sandwich that is hearty, healthy and filling and is made with whole grain bread, cheese and vegetables. I serve it with no-bake Berry Delight and will publish the recipe soon.



Pack a picnic basket with a quilt, cloth napkins, a bunch of sunflowers and a hearty, yet healthy meal and enjoy the lingering beauty of the season and if you are lucky, a little night music.


Hearty Vegetarian Deli Sandwich
Choose the best-quality whole grain bread you can bake or buy. The filling of a deli sandwich should be at least as thick as both of the slices of bread.
     
      Lightly spread 

low-fat cream cheese 
      
     on both slices of

high-quality whole grain bread
     
     Stack half of the following ingredients on one slice of bread and the remaining ingredients on the  second

sliced Provolone cheese
sliced, peeled cucumber
sliced avocado
sliced tomato
sliced red onion
salad greens
salt and pepper
sliced Portabello mushrooms
     
     Sprinkle a small amount of 

Light Italian salad dressing on one half. 

     Carefully combine the halves, spear with a toothpick and wrap securely. Chill until time to serve.
