52 sandwiches #35: greek salad

Did you see all of the pictures I posted for Workspace Wednesday yesterday? You probably didn't because I didn't post any. ;)
Boo to me and my bad jokes and lack of posting. I have been looking through my vast amount of pictures for my Project Life layouts though. I have to look through my camera, through my phone, through Jesse's phone, pictures that were emailed to me from Jasmine, pictures that were emailed to me from Oscar, etc. It's alotta pictures. I didn't have any post worthy pictures for Workspace Wednesday, but here's a mental picture for you: I'm crouched over my computer with furrowed brows uploading pictures from my camera, phone in one hand looking through its gallery, a squirmy Juli in my lap playing with a toy, Addy nearby with an array of toys asking a billion questions, and I'm thinking, "Keep it together, man" as one monster told another in the movie Monster's Inc. (Yes, half of what I quote is from children's TV shows or movies).

ANYWAY.

You did read the title correctly- this post is about one of my 52 sandwiches. I came across a tasty looking sandwich on Gina's blog skinnytaste.com. I love her recipes and subscribe to her blog. She lightens up all of her dishes without losing the flavor. She even posts Weight Watchers' points for her recipes, which I think is awesome. I made her Baked Chicken Parmesan for dinner last night. Jesse often orders chicken parmesan at Italian restaurants. He liked the recipe so much he said, "I want this again for my half birthday." (Half birthdays were a hit around here).

Sandwiches. Right. So, I was saying I came across Gina's tasty looking Greek Salad Sandwich recipe, which is full of vegetables (yay for free Weight Watchers' points).

I did substitute a few ingredients from her recipe- like the ciabatta bread (I used flat bread) and the red wine vinegar (I had balsamic vinegar and read that it's a fine substitute).

For this sandwich I added balsamic vinegar to my sliced red onion and sliced Kalamata olives. I let that sit while I prepared the rest of my sandwich. I layered all the vegetables- sliced tomato, sliced cucumber, lettuce- and added feta cheese to the flatbread. Finally, I added the red onion and Kalamata olives to my sandwich, and voila!

Done and delicious!
