Author Notes: After reading Mark Bittman's "Food Matters" my husband and I decided to try the "vegan until 6:00 PM" way of eating. While trying to come up with hearty vegan lunches I developed this sandwich. I must confess that sometimes I add a sprinkling of feta cheese which follows the spirit, if not the letter, of the law. I have made the cheese optional for a truly vegan sandwich. Making fresh dressing is really key to the brightness of the flavors.TheNostalgicBaker

Barbara is a trusted source on General Cooking.

I've been working towards this also. (The thing I'm having the most trouble giving up is milk in my morning coffee.) I make a similar dressing with some finely chopped fresh oregano. Lemon and oregano say "greek salad" to me!

Oregano is a great addition. I use have been using soy milk in my tea for years and my husband just started using soy "creamer" in his coffee.
