Author Notes: My daughter leans toward all things vegetarian. This sandwich was a huge hit with her entire tennis team when I provided the match snack (both vegetarians and non vegetarians). I love this sandwich because it highlights the pure straight forward flavors of each ingredient and together it is simply delicious.chocolatierjane
