(Main recipe only – doesn't include extras or drink)


Spread both slices of bread with the cheese.

Spreading the cheese on both slices of the bread – and patting the salad dry – helps prevent a soggy sandwich!


Pat the salad dry and use to fill the sandwich, sprinkling with pepper or paprika if using.

Try other salad vegetables, or even some pineapple.
