"I thought it needed just a little something else so i drizzled the sandwiches with about 1 tsp. of vinaigrette. The dressing definitely spiced up my meal!"
"I love vegetable sandwiches, actually, I call them "salad sandwiches", I omit the humus, and use mayonnaise spread on the bread. And I use as many fresh vegetables as I can."
