Veggie Sandwich & Fresh Express Salad Giveaway
**This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered!**
I don't buy a lot of bagged salad - mostly because I regularly receive romaine lettuce from my Produce Club, and whole heads of lettuce are usually a better deal per ounce at the grocery store. Although, when I do buy the bagged salad, I always go for the Spring Mix or Mixed Greens. It's great to combine with my (sometimes boring and repetitive) regular lettuce and mix it up!
So I was excited when, as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, (my advertising partner) I received Fresh Express bagged salad to experiment with in the kitchen.
I am a huge vegetable person, so one of my favorite ways to use up mixed greens is to make it into a Vegetable Sandwich! This is one of my favorite meals after picking up my Produce Basket, because I have free range on some great looking vegetables! The crisp mixed greens add the flavor variety that makes these sandwiches complex and interesting enough to stand up on it's own.
Whole wheat bun
Red onion slices
Sprinkle of Mrs. Dash
Big handful of mixed greens for each sandwich
Spread a layer of mayo on each side of the bun, then layer on your choice of vegetables and cheese. Sprinkle tomato slices and mayo with Mrs. Dash. Top with a big handful of mixed greens and eat away!
Other optional toppings (which have all been tried by myself with great success!): Hummus, bean sprouts, avocado, grilled mushrooms, roasted veggies, olives, pickles and jalapenos. A true leftover and clean out the frig extravaganza!
This is all up to your personal tastes - my husband thinks I'm a bit coo-coo for this creation...let's just say the two sandwiches below were both devoured by me and my pregnant appetite!
** GIVEAWAY! **
