Top ciabatta bread wtih grilled vegetables and thick slices of fresh mozzarella for a hearty and healthy sandwich

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl, tossing to coat. Remove vegetables from bowl, reserving vinegar mixture. Place the onion and bell pepper on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 7 minutes on each side or until tender. Grill zucchini 3 minutes on each side or until tender.

Step 3

Hollow out bottom half of bread, leaving a 1/2-inch-thick shell; reserve torn bread for another use. Layer grilled vegetables, greens, cheese, and basil in bottom of loaf; drizzle reserved vinegar mixture on top. Cover with top of the bread; press lightly.

Step 4

Place filled loaf on grill rack; grill 4 minutes on each side or until cheese melts. Cut into quarters.

Chef's Notes

You can use a grilling basket to make it easier to handle the vegetables as they cook. If you can't find a loaf of ciabatta, use focaccia.

We made something similar (based on the "farmer's market sandwich" also from cooking light, June 2011. It is very simply, but very very good.

Yum!! I love this. We have always grilled veggies for me while hubby grilled his meat. This is a great way to use them as a meal. A few more recipes like this and I might get my hubby to eat vegetatian too.
