Wow! Meat lovers won’t even miss the meat, but they will rave about the simply fabulous flavor of this hearty grilled veggie sandwich! It’s wonderful with ciabatta bread’s crispy crust and light, airy texture. This recipe’s a keeper! —Diana Tseperkas, Hamden, Connecticut

"I'm a vegetarian, but my husband of 30 years is not and we both loved this sandwich! I used a mandolin to thin slice the zucchini. It was great! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!"

"I added some portabella mushrooms I needed to use up, and this was wonderful! I never missed having meat in this sandwich, and my family agreed. We've made it twice, basically following the recipe, and we'll make it over and over. Thanks for a great, simple recipe!"

"I made this as described but with reduced-fat feta. Fantastic. Will definitely make again. I did throw some chicken breast in some dressing as well, and put them on the grill at the same time, since hubs isn't too into veggie meals. Easy and delicious."

"I looked at this recipe several months ago and now I'm sorry I took so long to try it. It was wonderful! Substitutions can easily be made. I thought the combination of zucchini, red pepper and red onion was great! I didn't have Italian dressing so I used Ceaser instead. I think I will continue to do that from now on as my family prefers Ceaser. Instead of combining all the ingredients for the mayonnaise, I simply spread chipotle mayonnaise on the bread. I'm planning on making this again this week!"

"This sandwich is full of flavor. I used Balsamic Vinegrette because that's what I had. Very quick and easy. I didn't put the mayo on but it was still great. I can't wait to make it again.(My husband can't wait either.)"
