Easy Recipes - 10 Minutes to the Table
Add some Cucumber Slices
10 Minutes to the Table
We live in a fast paced world today and a quick lunch recipe is easy, plus also tasty. These two recipes take 10 minutes to put on the table and are appropriate for lunch or dinner. They are healthy recipes, as well as, being big on flavor. If desired, add a few pretzels or baked chips on the side to complete the meal
Of course, there is a huge variety of sandwiches to choose from, but this one has the added advantage of having fresh vegetables, i.e. cucumbers, red onions, and spinach. It adds a great nutritional value and the sandwich is nice and crunchy with a lot of flavor.
The spiciness of Dijon mustard also sets off the flavor of the ham and cheese. The addition of the crunchiness of the Ramen cabbage coleslaw salad is a nice addition to this type of sandwich.
