Marinated Grilled Vegetable Sandwiches

Yield Makes 4 servings
Notes: If using firm, crusty, coarse-textured bread such as ciabatta or pane francese, you can make the sandwiches at home up to 4 hours ahead; cover and chill. Otherwise, transport bread, arugula, cheese, and marinated vegetables separately, and let everyone assemble their own sandwiches on-site.


  • 1 loaf (1 lb.) herb-flavor or plain focaccia, ciabatta, or pane francese bread (1 to 1 1/2 in. thick)
  • 1 to 2 ounces arugula or watercress sprigs, rinsed and crisped
  • 1 pound fresh mozzarella or fresh chèvre (goat) cheese, thinly sliced
  • Marinated grilled vegetables
  • Salt and pepper
