This meal is full of fresh summer goodness from the farmer’s market. For the sandwich you will need the following:
1 Oroweat Multi-Grain Sandwich Thin
1 slice of mozarella cheese
1 slice of tomato
a few basil leaves or a sprinkle of dried basil
a drizzle of balsamic vinegar

Toast both halves of the sandwich thin. Place the slice of cheese on one and broil until cheese is melted and browning. On the other half of the bread place the tomato slice, drizzle with balsamic vinegar, and top with basil. Place both halves together and you have a great sandwich!

Now for the cucumber, tomato, and onion salad.

There really isn’t a recipe for this so be brave and just follow along with me. This is a salad my mother-in-law always made in the summer. The dressing is similar to cole slaw dressing.

In a medium size bowl (I use the one I’m going to serve it in to conserve on dirty dishes), plop two heaping tablespoons of lowfat mayonnaise. Add a glug of vinegar (around a tablespoon), two packets of splenda, and salt & pepper to taste. Mix well. Add to the dressing mixture one peeled and cubed cucumber, one diced yellow tomato, one diced red tomato, and two small onions diced. Toss to coat with the dressing.

Add a fresh peach or other fruit to these two items and you have a great fresh summer meal!!
