No panini press needed! A little lengthy in preparation. Make in the morning for a great picnic!

  • 2 tblsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 c. sun dried tomatoes, reserving 1 tblsp oil
  • 1/2 loaf ciabatta bread, split horizontally and hollowed out
  • Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 6 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together mustard and oil until thick. Spread on bread.
  2. Layer bottom half of bread with some of the lettuce, then cheese, tomatoes, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Top with remaining lettuce and bread.
  3. Wrap sandwich tightly in plastic and place on a baking sheet. Top with another baking sheet and weigh down with canned goods.
  4. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to overnight to meld flavours. Cut in half, serve.

Chicken and Marinated-Zucchini Sandwich

Less time intensive, but still needing to marinate. Tasty and unusual! I adored the chordette.

  • 1 zucchini/chordette
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tblsp lemon zest
  • 2 tblsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tblsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 lb chicken cutlets
  • Handful of chopped toasted almonds
  • Handful of fresh parsley
  • 1 loaf Italian bread
  • Romaine lettuce
  1. Slice the zucchini/chordette into ribbons with a vegetable peeler. Combine with the red onion, lemon zest, and lemon juice, with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and let stand 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, season 1 lb chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and broil until cooked through. Let cool, then shred and add marinated zucchini along with almonds and parsley.
  3. Cut 1 loaf Italian bread in half horizontally and hollow out. Make a sandwich.
