During my long commute to and from work, the thought of food takes over my mind, and that's when most of these recipes are born. This is cheat sandwich actually, It gives you the sense that you're having a salad, but takes on quite a different role when eaten as a sandwich. You almost marvel at the simple transformation from salad to sandwich, and giggle a little while eating, as it tastes that good.
That said, this sandwich incorporates familiar Greek salad ingredients but elevates it to a hip status.
This sandwich is not only delicious, it is pretty nutritious too! So go ahead an dig in, and savor the earthy notes of the Parsley, fragrant Dill and the creamy Feta all between two airy, buttery and crunchy Ciabatta toasts! —Nomaste

In This Recipe
The sandwich comes together in 3 simple parts. The dressing, the veggies and the toast.
First, the dressing. Toss the Dill, Parsley, Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper, Lime juice and Olives in a food processor and puree to make your dressing. About 2 to 3 minutes. When you achieve an almost pureed state, transfer to a bowl and set aside.
On to prepping the veggies. With the help of a vegetable peeler, shave off lengthwise, parts of Cucumber skin and leave some on, and slice the cucumbers about 1/4" thick on a diagonal bias. Set aside. Cut the stems off the Tomatoes, slice them in rounds 1/4" thick. Set aside.
Toast some thick cut Ciabatta slices in your toaster/oven, and when done apply the butter to all sides.
Now we assemble our sandwich. Spoon a layer of the dressing, and then slice 1/4" thick slices of the Feta and place on toast. Add some more dressing. Then the cucumbers, some more dressing, and then the tomatoes, some more dressing and finally another layer of the Feta on top, and lightly add some more dressing. Cap it with the second slice of the Ciabatta, and you're done!
