The Best Veggie Sandwich

Recipe by  

"A local restaurant used to serve a version of this sandwich but when they discontinued it, I experimented and made it better with the addition of dry roasted sesame seeds and using English Muffins instead of whole wheat bread. Garnish each with a black olive, if desired."

Having made this a few times now, I've taken to placing the sandwich with the vegetables under the broiler for a minute or two before adding the dressing and cheese because usually the cheese will melt long before the veggies warm up. This is absolutely the best vegetable sandwich out there.

This is good but not great. I always feel kind of sickly after I eat this but my husband really likes them so I will continue to make every once in a while.

Forgot to toast the English Muffins first and used store-bought taco-blend shredded cheese instead of smoked, but still came out great. Looking over the ingredients, I thought the cheese would be a pronounced flavor, but wasn' fact none of the ingredients took center statge...they all seemed to mingle together to create a unique combination of flavors and textures...well done, and easier to make than I anticipated!

This was awesome. The sprouts I think are optional. If you choose to use onions, use the sweeter white or yellow. Red might be a little overpowering combined with the vinegar and oil mixture.

I loved this sandwich! I used sunflower seeds instead of sesame seeds, and a heartier kind of bread. I think the ranch dressing is the key to the flavor.

I made these on a whole wheat pita and liked it very much! The ranch dressing totally makes it and don't forget to salt and pepper the slice of tomato. Mmmmm! Will definitely make again.

I made these last year during lent and then forgot about them until the other day. We loved this sandwich. The Ranch dressing is a must! We have made it with and without tomato and both ways this sandwich is good. You can play with the cheese too!! Thanks for the recipe.

Too bad that one of the three star ratings pulled this recipe down 1/2 star because it definitely didn't deserve it! I made it with smoked gouda because it was all I had on hand and after the first sandwich, I sliced hard-boiled egg on the second. Either way, the sandwich was great. Thank you for sending it in. I will definitely continue with this recipe! Everyone at work loved it!
