Salad Sandwich Delight

Updated on March 13, 2013

Lettuce Salad Sandwich - Why Not

Lunch time is rolling around and you just can't decide whether to have a salad or a sandwich or both. Then you have decide what you want on your sandwich, or maybe your refrigerator is just not stocked with anything that interesting. A salad might be yummy, but you just don't feel like cutting up all the ingredients and you only have salad in the house. Then you have to decide on dressing. Forget it if your in a hurry - salads can take forever to eat which is great when you have the time for a nice leisurely lunch.

And that's why my granddaughter Kaitlyn and I invented my magic lettuce salad sandwich. It's a sandwich, it's a salad. It's not fattening if you don't want it to be and it is magically filling. Quick and easy. Great for lunch. Great for really anytime of the day you feel like something well, not a sandwich and not a salad but really it's both. I like mine open faced, but you can decide how you like it.

Like all of my home made up recipes, it's quick, super easy to prepare and even easier to clean up afterwards. And of course not many ingredients - you can fix it like I do or adjust it to your own creative salad sandwich delicious idea.

All of the photos were hungrily taken by me....just before I ate the whole thing!

Basic Salad Ingredients

Basic Salad Ingredients

Salad ingredients just don't get any easier to prepare when you used pre-packaged shredded lettuce. Not that I have anything against a head of lettuce which can definitely be used instead if that's what you keep in your fridge and prefer, but by the time I decide if I want to pull the lettuce out and cut it up, well I might just decide to reach for a piece of cake or something I don't really want to give in to so I keep shredded lettuce around all the time.

It's even a great idea if you prefer to buy fresh heads of lettuce to shred up a container full ahead of time and keep it ready to go for sandwiches just like these.

Shredded lettuce, a bowl or container to pour it in to. Oh, and a spoon or fork to mix it up with. All we are going to add is, mayonnaise.

Recipe For Salad Sandwich
Recipe For Salad Sandwich

I love to share and pass on easy recipes that I call Home Made Up. Here are the ingredients and a simple summary of how to put together a lettuce salad sandwich in no time at all. Step by Step photos and directions are included below.

Trust me it doesn't get any easier, and I promise it's good and good for you. Nutritionally, it has healthy produce, lettuce is always a keeper no matter what your fitness or weight loss program is, healthy fats in mayo and olive oil that helps keep you satisfied and fuller longer and fiber healthy carbs low in calories. We are talking about each sandwich weighing in at about 150 calories a piece. That's a great lunch even if you pair it with soup or a small bag of chips.

It's a great snack anytime and way better than the bag of chips or ice cream I know you were thinking about!

Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 5 min
Yields: Individual or Family Style

Ingredients

  • Shredded Lettuce
  • Mayonnaise
  • Flat Bread or Slim Bread or Bread Of Your Choice
  • Seasonings Like Salt and Pepper To Taste

Instructions

  1. Shred some lettuce or open a bag of pre shredded lettuce. Add as much as you need into a bowl. Add a dollop of mayonnaise to your liking and mix it up. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Toast a slim bread or flat bread or bread of your choice and beautifully arrange your salad mix on top. I like my sandwich open faced, but you can try yours both ways.

Dollop The Mayo

Mayonnaise With Olive Oil
Mayonnaise With Olive Oil

That's it, all I add to my lettuce is a dollop of mayonnaise. How much is a dollop? Hmmm, that's typical of my cooking and recipes. There's no exact measure of a dollop except how much you want. If you like a lot of mayo, add a big tablespoon full to start, if you aren't too sure or don't really like lots of it at a time, think smaller to start, you can always add more!

My favorite mayo is one with olive oil, even better there are light versions and brands with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, olive oil is healthy for you and check their nutritional labels some have only 50 calories per tablespoon which is probably way plenty. Kraft and Hellman's both have a light and regular style mayo with olive oil and I think they are both great. So even if you have a heaping dollop, still not so bad considering the calories from the lettuce is well, super minimal as all you bunnies out there know.

You can even add in a pinch of salt, or a smidgen of pepper or both if you like to add some seasoning.

Sandwich Thins Flat Bread Fundamentals

Sandwich Thins are my favorite base bread for this recipe. You can definitely use your favorite bread or rolls or bagels but I love that they range about 100 calories each, toast up perfectly in my toaster and hold the lettuce and mayo combination just right without soaking through. They aren't very expensive and readily available at your local grocery store. You can buy them in bulk from many of the Club Warehouses or even on Amazon, some to eat now and freeze some for later.

These are my personal favorite Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins.

Multi Grain Sandwich Thins are delicious too and still weigh in at only 100 calories each.

Pepperidge Farm has a great selection of flat breads too from goldfish shape to rounds also weighing in about 100 calories.

 

Flat Bread The Base

Flat Bread Sandwich Toast
Flat Bread Sandwich Toast

While you are mixing up your lettuce and mayo and letting it sit for a moment so the deliciousness of the mayo and seasonings combines just right, pop your flat bread base into the toaster. When you take them out of the pack it looks like one thin bread, see the top one on the plate but they come apart easily to form two sides to your sandwich. Looks thin, but they really pack a filling punch maybe because they have some healthy fiber in them (don't worry you can't tell they are healthy because they taste really good).

Toast them lightly or toast them crispy, I like mine a little on the crispy side so I get that nice even crunch every time I take a bite.

Salad Sandwich Ready To Eat

Salad Sandwich Platter

So that's it. Your simple, easy lettuce salad sandwich is ready to eat. But if you are wondering, how good could this really taste, I understand. Who would want just lettuce mixed with mayo on a toasted flat bread anyway. Trust me, it's yummy!

It's a great healthy choice and although I am not a vegetarian - what a great vegetarian sandwich recipe this is. I love proteins and meat and could probably eat bacon every meal but, since I am not really going to do that, this is a terrific option.

It's perfect for lunch, even if you are packing it to take to work. Just have your salad in one container and the bread (which doesn't have to be toasted if you don't have a toaster at work) and enjoy the ease of a cool, healthy and seriously, I think it's filling, lunch. It will give you more time to shop, or read or run errands!

Vegetarians or just salad lovers can always add in some shredded carrot or cut up cucumber for a nifty change but I really like it just the way it is.

Bowls In Every Size and Color

I Love Bowls. There I have said it again. I have bowls in every size, color and even shape. It's fun to mix stuff up or have your prep ready using cool bowls. I mix my salad in a bowl first so the flavors all come together before I add it to the toast. I often make extra so the salad mix is in the refrigerator, in a bowl, ready for my next craving.

By now you either think a sandwich with lettuce and mayo is either kind of an interesting idea or you think I'm just plain crazy! I endorse these highly. I have had a team of experts taste test them over and over (OK it was my family) but they give it rave reviews and admit that sometimes, even late at night they are thinking, I just need one of those salad sandwiches right now.

Do you think it's just plain silly or are you willing to give it a try? Let us know if you do - we want to know what you think about it too.

      I love bread, and I love greens, and I enjoy mayo as a condiment on either, but I need a more substantial lunch than that. In fact, I prefer a hot meal for lunch. But you've definitely whet my appetite for a simple iceberg lettuce wedge salad and some whole grain toast points.

      I was at the tip of Australia once when the guide on the tour was toasting sandwiches over an open fire. He toasted a letttuce sandwich and offered it to me to which I said "no thanks" . After some time he finally persuaded me to try it and to my surprise it was delicious.

      @poutine: Proteins, I love proteins I am a serious carnivore really and will probably more than make up for the proteins in the rest of my meals but I've learned that sometimes it's good to just crunch in a little salad treat. And really this sandwich will have about 6 grams of protein overall so not too bad for lunch sometimes and really, it's a great inbetween snack.

      I would totally consider a salad sandwich for lunch-- after all, I was the kid who ate apple sauce sandwiches for breakfast... drove my mom nuts! "That's not REAL food!" she'd say... but ultimately I got to have my way-- I liked bread-and-butter and I liked apple sauce, so I put the two together.

      Well yeah, this is similar to Subways veggie sub in concept.

      Yes I regularly have a salad sandwich, similar to yours but I love to add slices of fresh tomato and cucumber for a little extra filling. Pretty sure that doesn't add too many calories.

      I think I would like it better with tuna or ham added too or even maybe cheese, but why not?

      Great sandwich lens. I almost want to make one, but I just finished my lunch of fried chicken and salad...maybe tomorrow...

      Your salad sandwich sounds great and so quick and easy to make. I think I would add some tomato and maybe some egg to mine. Thanks to you and Kaitlyn for sharing this recipe!

      Sounds good. I just had a lettuce and tomato sandwich with a side of carrots for lunch.

      Sometimes you just have to make do with what you've got and this is a fun and funny lens about doing just that! Cheers~cb

      Your lettuce sandwich sounds delightful. I love lettuce and mayo, so this is a perfect combo. Well done!

      It sounds a little different, but maybe with some more veggies it could be good. Maybe some carrots and radishes...tomatoes...I'm going to have to try it!

      I would try this. Probably because I'm a lazy cook and it's kinda healthy. I would have never thought of it on my own though, so thanks for the suggestion! Blessed

      I think I would. I only use Arnold's whole wheat or multi-grain sandwich thins now. It cuts out alot of calories and carbs but still lets me have a satisfying sandwich.

      You could even add veggies of your choice. ie; tomato, cucumber, peppers

      I saw this and freaked! I though my mother and I were the only ones who made lettuce sandwiches! I have been eating "salad", or lettuce, sandwiches all my life. It sounds ridiculous but there is so much variety in bread, so many varieties of lettuce, and there are even special mayos. My favorite version is sprouted whole wheat with bibb and fresh spinach, made with oilve oil mayo :)

      I think a salad sandwich is an awesome idea! I like the Sandwich Thins bread, too. Perfect solution for lunch!

      I love salad so this would be the perfect sandwich for me. I'm wondering why I didn't think of this?? And, I too love the mayo with olive oil....yummy.

      I actually just created a lens on a salsa sandwich, so I think I would definitely try out a salad sandwich! I love trying new things, so why not? :)

      I would definitely try it... although I think (and I may be proven wrong, once I try it) I might end up adding some other ingredients and veggies. For a quick and easy lunch, though, this is a great idea.

      Add a slice of tomato and pickle and that is how we make these sandwhiches all the time at home. Sometimes along with the mayo, I'll add some Italian dressing for an extra kick.
