Pesto, Cucumber And Tomato Sandwich

          While going through my blog, I noticed that it has very few sandwich recipes, in fact there is only one, have to add some more in the future. To start with, today's post is this Pesto, Cucumber And Tomato Sandwich that I made for breakfast, a couple of days back. I have used store bought basil pesto and reduced fat cheese slices, making the sandwich a little more healthier. This is not only very easy to make, but a very filling one too..

Need To Have

  • Bread Slices
  • Basil Pesto
  • Tomato Slices
  • Cucumber Slices
  • Sundried Tomatoes In Olive Oil, chopped
  • White Cheese Slices
  • Pepper Powder


          For a single sandwich, I have used three slices of bread. Toast two slices on one side only and the third one on both sides. Take one slice, the toasted side facing you, spread a little basil pesto, place a cheese slice on the top, followed by the tomato slices. Add a dash of black pepper and place the bread slice that is toasted on both sides.

          Now arrange the cucumber slices and then the sun-dried tomatoes. Then place the third slice on the top, with the side that is not toasted on the outside. Apply a little olive oil, and toast on both sides on a hot skillet, pressing it lightly on the top while toasting. Remove, slice it into half and serve it warm.

I have not given measurements for any of the ingredients, use as many slices of tomatoes or cucumber, depending on the size of the bread slices,everything can be increased or decreased according to your taste.
