Stacked high with slices of tomato, onion, cucumber, avocado and provolone cheese, this is a vegetable sandwich that even confirmed carnivores will love. You can add or substitute other fresh vegetables; radishes, spinach or grated carrot go particularly well here. When you can't get good tomatoes, don't buy lousy, cottony ones; use twice the amount of lettuce instead.
- For Sauce:
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 teaspoon wine vinegar
- Fresh-ground black pepper
- For Sandwich:
- 8 thick slices multigrain bread
- 8 lettuce leaves
- 1/2 pound sliced provolone
- 2 tomatoes, sliced
- 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced thin
- 1 small red onion, sliced very thin
- 1 ripe avocado, preferably Hass, sliced
- 1 cup alfalfa sprouts
FOR SAUCE: In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, dill, mustard, oil, vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
FOR SANDWICH: Spread a tablespoon of the dill sauce on one side of each of four slices of bread. Top each slice with lettuce, provolone, tomatoes, a sprinkling of salt and pepper, the cucumber, onion, avocado and sprouts. Drizzle another tablespoon of dill sauce over each sandwich. Cover with the remaining four slices of bread.
Tip: If raw onions have too much of a bite, tame them by rinsing the slices under cold running water or soaking them in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes. Pat them dry before putting them on your sandwich. WINE RECOMMENDATION:
The grassy, herbal flavors of sauvignon blanc marry beautifully with dill. With this sandwich, the lighter and crisper the wine, the better the match will be. A Sancerre or Pouilly-Fum&eacute; from the Loire Valley in France will do nicely.
