New Recipe: Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Oh boy.... this might be my new favorite summer sammie.

During my fabulous vacation on Cape Cod, my sister-in-law Beth and I made these from a Weight Watchers 15 Minute Five Ingredient Recipe Cookbook.  As always, we modified a bit, but look at this bad boy!

Perfect Sammie to take to the Beach!
Now that I'm at home, I am going to make another version of this sandwich that's more Jenny-friendly.  The scale showed a few additional pounds this morning (Gasp!), so no baguette for me!  

Grilled Veggie Sandwich

For the Grill:
1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 orange bell pepper, sliced
1 purple onion, sliced
Grape Tomatoes
Yellow squash, sliced
Zucchini, sliced
Portabello mushrooms, sliced

2 Tbsp. Lite Vinaigrette or Jenny Balsalmic Dressing

For the Sandwich:
Spinach Leaves
Sliced English Cucumbers

Multi-Grain 100 Calorie Sandwich Thins

Slice all of your grill veggies and place in a bowl.  Toss with dressing - choose a quantity to your liking.  Place in a grill basket.

Cook the veggies until they are deliciously browned and slightly charred.

At the Cape, we used a french baguette to make the sandwich; however, now that I'm home and back to reality, a Sandwich Thin sounds like a better idea.

Yum, Yum, Yum
Add a layer of spinach and cucumbers.  Top with your grilled veggies.  In this pic, I added a little extra vinaigrette to the tough french bread to soften things up (and I spilled it all over the cutting board.)

I hope you love this sandwich as much as I do!!!
Feel free to add any veggies you like to the sandwich.  For my personal sammie, I only use peppers, tomatoes, and onions on the grill with the cukes/spinach, and it tastes AWESOME!  The peppers develop MAD flavor on the grill.. seriously delish!  Another idea:  the original recipe called for some fat free feta, which we left out, which you may choose to add for protein.  I also think that a smear of Laughing Cow Cheese might be yummy.  Play with it!

HERE'S A TIP:  Make extra veggies!  They can hang out in your fridge and be added to any of your favorite Jenny foods or fresh salads.  They're delicious cold or warmed up!

P.S. Just went out and bought the ingredients for this. I am going to use Wishbone light italian dressing (because I have it in the fridge) and possibly marinate the veg in it before I put it on the grill so I won't have to oil the grill or the veggies! YOU ROCK. Thank you sooo much for this!

I think you could definitely marinade them. I used a little Pam grill spray and just the veggies and dressing. No extra oil here!

Going to put them in another JC dish tonight. If it tastes as good as I think it will, it will likely get posted, too!
