MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 27, 2010

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2009

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.
