Greek Veggie Sandwich pulls together Greek flavors mixed with crunchy vegetables. All in one healthy sandwich.
When I was in college, there were three Greek restaurants on campus. All were seedy dives, but in different ways. One was literally a hole in the wall, that was carry-out only. It had the best gyros in town.
The second place was dine-in and had a varied Mediterranean menu, but you didn't exactly what to sit and eat inside. It was, how shall I put it... grimy?
The third restaurant was "higher end". The menu was also Mediterranean, and was more expensive. The decor was gaudy, and the dining room was dimly lit. It all had a certain mafia quality to it, know what I mean?
You had the feeling there was more going on behind the scenes, but you couldn't put your figure on it. Needless to say, I didn't frequent any of these restaurants. One meal at each place was enough.
Lucky for me, I could have Greek food any time I wanted by simply going to my mom’s. It was clean, I could dine-in and it was brightly lit. The food was amazing! My mom could throw together the best Greek salad you've ever tasted!
She never measured dressing ingredients. The salad would feature whatever veggie needed to be used up, but it was always so satisfying. My mom’s cooking is the inspiration behind my mediterranean dip as well as my Greek chicken salad.
And now it’s the inspiration behind this Greek veggie sandwich. The "glue" is the Greek yogurt and hummus. A huge pile of veggies is tucked in the middle, to give this sandwich crunch and staying power.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the Feta Tzatziki mayo. Talk about a flavor punch! With just a dollop, lunch goes from drab to fab.
This Greek veggie sandwich is incredible and one I'll been indulging in weekly. Given it's a pretty healthy option, I think you should too.
