Grilled Veggie Sandwiches

With the first day of spring yesterday I got excited and started thinking about how summer is just around the corner. I pulled out my George Forman Grill and found this recipe to make these sandwiches from one of my favorite websites, All Recipes. (I am very excited because I am finally beginning to understand how to link to other sites, so you will now know there I get some of these recipes!) Anywho, I served this to my roommate and she LOVED it. We had these sandwiches with a nice cold glass of Trader Joe's "Two Buck Chuck” and forgot that it was raining outside. I am now getting excited for the impending warm weather!


Ingredients:

Serves 4
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 cup olive oil
1 cup sliced red bell peppers
1 small zucchini, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
1 small yellow squash, sliced
4 focaccia bread pieces, split horizontally
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


DIRECTIONS:
  • In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the grill for high heat.
  • Brush vegetables with olive oil on each side. Brush grate with oil. Place bell peppers and zucchini closest to the middle of the grill, and set onion and squash pieces around them. Cook for about 3 minutes, turn, and cook for another 3 minutes. The peppers may take a bit longer. Remove from grill, and set aside.
  • Spread some of the mayonnaise mixture on the cut sides of the bread, and sprinkle each one with feta cheese. Place on the grill cheese side up, and cover with lid for 2 to 3 minutes. This will warm the bread, and slightly melt the cheese. Watch carefully so the bottoms don't burn. Remove from grill, and layer with the vegetables. Serve!
