Tired of the same, boring sandwiches for lunch? With a few simple swaps, you can take your lunch from ordinary to extraordinary. Your taste buds will thank you!
Lettuce is a standard addition to most sandwiches, usually iceberg. But there are so many varieties of greens to choose from, each with its own unique flavor. For a peppery kick, try arugula. Baby spinach provides complex flavor and nutrients without bitterness. Butter lettuce gives a richness while still being light. And don’t forget that large leaf lettuce can double as the “bread” to save calories.
Speaking of bread, making a change there lets you try something new without a drastic change. Hawaiian rolls make excellent sliders. Swap Texas toast for your hamburger bun. And ciabatta goes great with cold cuts.
Pile on the fruits and veggies for health benefits and explosions of taste. Roast beef begs for banana peppers or roasted red peppers. Turkey pairs well with cucumbers or cranberry sauce. Look to inspiration from your favorite salads too. Olives, feta, and artichoke hearts make great toppings for a rotisserie chicken sandwich. Or channel the French Riviera with tuna, boiled egg, green beans, and potatoes on a baguette.
Get creative and turn your next sandwich into something unexpected and full of flavor!
