Spring is in the air, bringing buds, brightness, and one big question: How do you make the most of spring produce? Today, Heather Hands of Flourishing Foodie shares how she combines the season’s best greens to make one delicious sandwich. Here’s how it’s done…
By Heather Hands of Flourishing Foodie
Makes 1 sandwich
2 slices whole grain seedy bread, toasted
1 oz. aged cheddar
1-2 tbsp hummus
1 tbsp basil pesto
1 marinated artichoke heart, quartered
1/2 avocado, sliced
1/4 green pepper, sliced
3 green leaf lettuce leaves
Salt and pepper
Set the oven to broil. Toast the bread. Layer one slice of bread with cheese. Place in the oven and broil until the cheese is bubbly. On the other slice, spread the hummus. Drizzle with the pesto, and layer with the artichoke hearts.
On the slice with the cheese, layer the lettuce on the bottom, followed by the green peppers and avocado slices. Season with salt and pepper. Bring both sides of the sandwich together, and then slice in half.
Serve with a pickle, and some regular ruffle chips.
Thank you so much, Heather!
