Greek Salad Sandwich

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

    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.
