I worked at a sandwich shop that made these vegetable sandwiches stuffed with cucumbers, sprouts, tomatoes, and avocadoes. They were a veggie's dream!

A great summertime sandwich! One of my favorites. I used pita bread, my husband prefers tortilla wraps. Pita bread can be a little messy but delicious. I also use low-fat cream cheese and just a couple slices of avocados. Two whole avodacos would be way too much (must be a misprint.) Note to Eggyplant: a pepperoncini is a mild yellow pepper, also referred to as Banana Peppers. They are usually sold in jars near the pickle section. Gives the sandwich a little zing. Read More

Fabulous! I toasted some whole grain bread before assembling the sandwich. I used light cream cheese and added a little salt and pepper. This would easily make a nice wrap sandwich. I would definitely make this again! Read More

Great sandwich! You definitely only need one avocado though. And since the bread was already spread with cream cheese I chose not to mash the avocado and spread it on the bread. I just sliced the avocado and added it to the sandwich. Read More

The first time that I made this I rolled it in a tortilla shell & it just didn't do the sandwich justice. The second time I made it I marinated the cucumbers in Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing (found on this site) instead of the vinegar & oil & had it on wheat bread. YUM! It was messy but very tasty! Thanks Jennifer!! Read More

I am just plain crazy for this sandwich, and I can't imagine why I never thought to put these ingredients together myself. I've made this multiple times now, and have adjusted it to just my liking: Use a handful of fresh baby spinach in place of lettuce, used only 1T of lite cream cheese mashed together with 1/4 to 1/3 of an avacado and a pinch of onion powder and black pepper(this seemed to make plenty of spread to cover both pieces of bread), add sliced pickles when the mood strikes. I've tried it sprinkled with a variety of vinegars, and although I like them all, balsamic is my absolute favorite. I also pass on the EVOO, and sometimes I sprinkle a little drief basil and/or oregano over the vinegar. Absolutely fabulous & oh, so satisfying. Read More

I never thought a sandwich could be a 5-star recipe but this one is! My husband wasn't too thrilled when he saw what I had prepared for lunch but even he had to admit that it was delicious. My only changes: I used half the vinegar and oil (they add a lot but I think 1 tsp. each would be too much) substitued onion for pepperoncini sliced the avocado instead of mashing it and left out the sprouts (because I didn't have any - but they're probably a good addition). The sandwiches came out looking beautiful (not a mess like other reviewers commented...) and tasting great! Read More

This is a good very filling veggie sandwich. I've made it several times since I discovered this recipe a week ago! I've tried both slicing the avocado and spreading it spreading it made for a less messy sandwich that stayed together better. Did not use pepperoncinis but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Also be sure to use thick whole wheat bread or else the oil/vinegar combo will make the bread fall apart. Delicious! Read More

Gave this sandwich five stars because I didn't want to discourage anyone else from trying it. It was very good. A few thoughts though; I made this in the winter and served with soup. I really think it would have been better for summer fare. Meat and potaoes hubby wasn't impressed. I tried hiding the all veggie aspect of the sandwich by adding a layer of salad shrimp. I didn't work. They were too light and delicately flavored and almost seemed like more vegggies. Hubby isn't wild about avocadoes. I used 1/2 of a big one and it was more than he could tolerate. "Thick" wheat bread is not easy to get unless you use a wheat hoagie roll or bake it yourself. I used a nice homestlye wheat but it was still pretty soggy and messy. Although I don't mind that I love messy hearty sandwiches but it might be a disaster with small kids though. Serve with a fork to scoop up the leftover "salad" that falls out of the sandwich. I didn't have any sprouts but I'd like to try it again with them. I had the lettuce but after the sandwich was put together with all that stuff I forgot to add it. Don't think I missed it. The cream cheese was the secret ingredient to make this stand out from regular mayonaise based veggie sandwiches. I'll remember that for other occasions. Read More
