Roasted Sweet Pepper Sandwiches
The key to a great life isn’t just one big component. If you think about it, what makes a great life is segmented components that are doing well within themselves. It’s a matter of learning how to put the pieces together in just the right way. Once that happens, then you can sit back for a while and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Pun intended!
This sandwich is amazing in so many ways. It’s because of the delicious roasted red peppers. Then you add balsamic vinaigrette. Then you add whipped feta. Then you toast up the most amazing garlic and herb bread. Then you put it together. Then you take one bite and wonder where has this recipe been your ENTIRE life? Well, wonder no more!
Note: To assemble the sandwiches, you’ll need to spread the whipped feta spread onto the toasted baguettes. Then just top each slice of toast with the peppers and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette.
