  • California Grilled Veggie Sandwich by doreenbuch

    This is so good!!!! I marinate the veggies in balsamic vinaigrette dressing b/f grilling and also add portabello mushrooms. I also use a long loaf of good bread and slice it horizontally, then slice it down like a sub....easy and great for grilling season!!!!

    California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

    I came up with this recipe to entertain friends. Since I
    am a semi-vegetarian and love to BBQ, I am always
    inventing something new. The first time I made this, my
    meat-lover friends raved about this dish! I prefer mesquite coals
    over gas barbeques...however, either works fine. Prep Time:
    approx. 30 Minutes. Cook Time: approx. 20 Minutes. Ready in:
    approx. 50 Minutes. Makes 4 servings.
    Printed from Allrecipes, Submitted by Heather Johnson
    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
    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 the with vegetables. Enjoy as
    open faced grilled sandwiches.
