1 peeled cucumber, diagonally cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
3 cups chopped arugula
1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion
2 tablespoons chopped pitted kalamata olives
How to Make It
To prepare the vinaigrette, combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.
To prepare the sandwich, combine 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Place 2 tomato slices on each of 4 bread slices, and sprinkle evenly with half of the salt mixture. Arrange the cucumber slices over the tomato slices; sprinkle evenly with remaining salt mixture. Add arugula, onion, and chopped olives to the vinaigrette; toss to coat. Arrange the arugula mixture evenly over the cucumber slices. Top with the remaining bread slices.
We love this sandwich...the dressing is the star! I make it in the summer time when we have fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden.
GaryCA (and others who rate their version of a recipe): Please stop! It doesn't help at all for people, like me, who read reviews before deciding whether or not to try a recipe. If you've created your own recipe and love it, then submit it as a new recipe. I (and others who have complained about this, too) want to see reviews on the actual recipe, not a recipe that you've tweaked beyond recognition. I've contacted myrecipes.com and asked them to please monitor and remove reviews like this or at least have some kind of message come up before a review is posted to ask people to only post reviews of the actual recipe. I got a nice 'thank you for the suggestion' email back but nothing has changed.
Sorry, just venting, but it is frustrating when this type of review changes the overall rating...it hasn't in this case but often times it doe
This sandwich was OUTSTANDING! That vinaigrette dressing is what does the trick. The combination is WOW so amazing! My husband LOVED it too. I used a multigrain bread from publix instead of the sourdough bread and added mozzarella cheese. I broiled the bread with the cheese before adding the veggies and vinaigrette & voila, the most amazing sandwich ever! Thank you Cooking Light!
