Oh boy…. this might be my new favorite summer sammie.
Feel free to add any veggies you like to the sandwich. For my personal sammie, I only used peppers, tomatoes, and onions on the grill with the cukes/spinach and it tasted AWESOME! The peppers develop MAD flavor on the grill!
Another idea: The original recipe called for some fat free feta, which we also left out because we didn’t have it in the fridge. You may choose to add the feta for extra protein. I also think that a smear of Laughing Cow Cheese might be yummy. Play with it!
ONE FINAL TIP: Make extra veggies! They can hang out in your fridge and be added to any of your favorite Jenny foods or fresh salads. They’re delicious cold in salads or warmed up and added to your favorite dishes!
