Recipe #174: Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Delicious.  The cheese totally makes this one- don't skip it!  I cooked everything longer than the recipe said, and put my veggies in a grill veggie basket.  So hearty, you don't even notice that there's no meat!  The feta cheese came in sizeable chunks that didn't easily melt on the grill, but the hot veggies made the cheese soft and warm anyways.

After I took this picture, I smashed the two halves together in a giant, delicious, messy sandwich!


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced red bell peppers
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 2 (4-x6-inch) focaccia bread pieces, split horizontally  (I was only able to get ciabatta)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the grill for high heat.
  3. Brush vegetables with olive oil on each side. Brush grate with oil. Place bell peppers and zucchini closest to the middle of the grill, and set onion and squash pieces around them. Cook for about 3 minutes, turn, and cook for another 3 minutes. The peppers may take a bit longer. Remove from grill, and set aside.
  4. Spread some of the mayonnaise mixture on the cut sides of the bread, and sprinkle each one with feta cheese. Place on the grill cheese side up, and cover with lid for 2 to 3 minutes. This will warm the bread, and slightly melt the cheese. Watch carefully so the bottoms don't burn. Remove from grill, and layer with the vegetables.
