Yogurt and Herb Summer Sandwich

A delicious vegetarian sandwich with a difference. This light, yet filling Yogurt and Herb Summer sandwich is great for lunch, afternoon tea or a light supper. A sandwich prepared with multigrain and multiseed bread slices, a mild and luscious yoghurt spread made with colourful vegetables, fresh and aromatic herbs and lots of vibrant leafy salad.

IPL in India has been getting hotter, just like their summer by the day and so does UK's weather. ( Right now temperatures are back to their teens) Well, we have accepted that UK's weather is always in terrible twos ;) and we have to live with it.  Unseasonably the UK got so warm, the blistering sun was firing its rays. and making it the warmest April day in nearly 70 years. Suddenly the beast from the east seemed long gone and some of us just couldn't bear the sudden change in weather, Lol, I managed to get a bit of sunburnt while doing gardening.




Let me be honest here although we Brits love to chase the sun, same time can't handle the scorching heat, like many, I too cannot handle anything more than 20C, I struggle and straight away that effects come in my cooking, That just made me think how on earth I used to cook in India in almost 40C..just mere of thought is making me dizzy!

As the temperature was on the incline we just wanted to have something fresh and light for on that hot weekend. The Husband himself asked me not to cook anything elaborate and heavy, and asked me to make Yogurt sandwiches that I only prepare in warmer weather and try to avoid cheese as much as possible. We all agreed and next day our lunch was these Yogurt and Herb Summer Sandwich!

Now that while we are talking about sandwiches, let me tell you one interesting fact about the sandwich, do you know why any kind of fat we apply on a bread before assembling the sandwiches? When you spread fat such as butter or mayo, these works as a barrier for the wetter ingredients such as tomatoes.

Nowadays husband got into the habit asking me this, especially when he really like something ' Is this recipe already on your blog? ' This made me think that I have not posted a single recipe of sandwich on JCO! He said he'll wait until I take pictures, after a taking a couple of quick shots we relished these absolutely delicious, filling yet light meal that is so easy to whip up! These sandwiches are perfect for breakfast too if it's too warm to eat any cooked breakfasts where you are living.

Notes:- 
I have used multiseed and multigrain bread slices. 
Do not keep this sandwiches out for a long time, it may get soggy or yogurt turn sourer. 
Don't have time to drain the yougurt? pick up very thick yogurt such as greek.

  18. Years back when we didn't get cream cheese or ricotta (again we don't get it!) I use make sandwiches with yogurt spread for hubby. He would only take sandwiches to work and had to innovate. Hung yogurt with finely chopped cucumber, mint and coriander. Love your recipe with so much more greens, herbs and veggies. A perfect summer treat. Just yesterday my brother too was complaining about the scorching heat.
