Sandwich Queen: Zucchini & Apple with Spinach Garlic Spread
I know, I know, another zucchini recipe – but this one is seriously too good not to share with you gals (and guys!). My inspiration for this sandwich came from JL and her Cucumber and Apple sandwich. Before I read her post and recipe last fall, I had never thought to put apple on a sandwich.
I’m not one for mixing my sweet and savory ingredients so I was a little skeptical about the apple-sandwich idea. The other day I was thinking about my sandwich post for this week and I knew I wanted to incorporate some fresh veggies and spinach, but one of the issues I always have with spinach on sandwiches is that it never seems to stay put. So, the idea of the spinach spread was born. As I was making the spread, I had an apple in my fruit bowl that was just staring me down, so I took that as a sign and decided to give it a shot.
The results were amazing! I think the apple-sandwich might be a new go-to for me and it’s definitely a great way to use up some of your CSA or farmer’s market haul. These ingredients would also make for some interesting and delightful tea sandwiches for parties.
Do you like to mix your sweet and savory ingredients together? What’s your favorite flavor combo?
