I was so excited when the opportunity came along to bring you this post for my Loaded Veggie Club Sandwich featuring Dave’s Killer Bread! I have been enjoying Dave’s 21 Whole Grains and Seeds bread toasted with peanut butter (best peanut butter toast ever) or my favorite red currant jelly (yum!), but my immediate thought was that it was long past time for another sandwich on The Veg Life! This one contains my favorite secret ingredient 🙂
I shop for Dave’s Killer Bread’s at my local Walmart right there in the bread aisle. I am a huge fan of all that texture – the more the better! Dave’s Killer Bread is USDA Organic, Non-GMO project verified, contains no artificial anything and has a whopping 5 grams of protein per slice. Did you know that it’s the number 1 selling organic bread in the country? I didn’t either, but I knew it was really good 🙂
I like to get all of my ingredients prepped and ready to go. Today I am using all organic produce – green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, cucumbers and an avocado mayonnaise (vegan, of course). And that secret ingredient I told you about earlier? Thinly sliced pears! This brings a mild sweetness to the sandwich, so there’s that salty and sweet thing going on. I promise you, this is a keeper!
Were you wondering how I got those decorative designs on my cucumbers? It’s simple. I just used a citrus zester and “peeled” the cucumber. Just slice and voila!
Vegan mayonnaise and fresh avocado chunks are folded together with a pinch of salt and pepper. I also recommend giving those avocados a squeeze of lemon juice to help retain their color while you are doing the prep portion of this recipe. You don’t need a lot, just a touch will do. I like lots of pepper – I think I get that from my grandfather who literally put pepper on everything!
Lets make our Loaded Veggie Club Sandwich featuring Dave’s Killer Bread!
So we are ready to begin assembly of our loaded veggie club sandwich. I am drooling just thinking about it 🙂 I am such a bread fanatic. Anyone who knows me will tell you that. Sandwiches are my go-to meal!
I began with my avocado mayonnaise, then the lettuce, tomato (stop here and season with additional salt and pepper), red onion, cucumbers and finally, our pears. I like a pinch of salt on them. It just enhances the flavor, but you can omit this step if you prefer. It’s that salty/sweet thing I love so much.
Now this sandwich is LOADED (as the title suggests), so you may want to secure it with a sandwich skewer. Be sure to enjoy it right away!
Two of my other favorite accompaniments to a sandwich are dill pickles (a must) and barbecue potato chips. Doesn’t this look amazing? I assure you – it was 🙂
