This fresh green goddess sandwich loaded with avocado green goddess dressing, leafy greens, crunchy cucumbers and fresh mozzarella will be your new go-to for a simple, healthy vegetarian lunch!
If you're in a lunch rut and looking for a fresh new idea for spring, I have the perfect sandwich for you! It's loaded with so much green goodness, creamy homemade green goddess dressing, and fresh mozzarella for an irresistible meatless meal that you'll want to make all season, whether you’re working from home or taking it to go.
Why You'll Love This Green Goddess Sandwich
If you like the idea of eating less meat, but also don't want to eat salads for every meal, this is the sandwich for you. It's so satisfying and filling, thanks to the protein, fiber, and fat combination from delicious grainy bread, thick slices of mozzarella and the avocado Greek yogurt green goddess sauce. The crunchy cucumbers, peppery arugula and sprouts add a nice pop of spring freshness. It's perfect for packing to go or whipping up for an at-home lunch break.
About The Sauce
If you haven't made my avocado green goddess dressing yet, what are you waiting for?! Greek yogurt and avocado give it an ultra creamy texture, while lemon juice and fresh herbs add a punchy pop of brightness. It’s healthy and delicious not only on this sandwich, but on anything and everything else!
How To Make This Green Goddess Sandwich
I don't really need to tell you how to make a sandwich, but to please the Google gods, I will anyway:
- Make the green goddess dressing. Head to this post for the full recipe and detailed instructions.
- Thickly slice some fresh mozzarella. You'll need 1-2 oz per sandwich. Slice half of a cucumber into rounds.
- Spread the green goddess sauce onto one slice of grainy bread. Top with arugula, cucumber, mozzarella, and sprouts. Top with another slice of bread. Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 2 sandwiches.
- Enjoy! Share with a friend! Or don't.
