I absolutely love the foods of summer – fresh vegetables and herbs, berries, melons, pasta with light sauces, grilled chicken, iced tea and more. They are so delicious, so nutritious and, for the most part, so figure-friendly! If it were possible, I’d eat them year round. And while it’s hard to pick a favorite, Grilled Vegetable Sandwiches come close to receiving that honor in my family.
These sandwiches are so, so good. They use fresh vegetables that are abundant and inexpensive this time of year and they’re easy to make – you can turn the prep work into a fun family activity. You can also add fresh summer herbs – one of the tastiest ways is to add my secret ingredient that really makes these sandwiches – basil pesto.
In addition, you can adapt them to the tastes of every family member. As a matter of fact, the easiest way to serve them is to let each person build his or her own sandwich. So even if your family includes a picky eater who only wants grilled bread and cheese, you’re covered – and it leaves more delicious vegetables for you! And if another family member believes that every meal must include meat, throw a chicken breast on the grill and he or she can enjoy a Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Sandwich.
