Semi-dried tomatoes and marinated artichokes add a touch of class to this lunch time staple.


  • 4 slices thick wholegrain bread
  • 2 tsp basil pesto
  • 1 cup baby spinach, rocket or butter lettuce leaves
  • 2 small tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fat-free semi-sundried tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup marinated artichokes (97% fat-free), drained and chopped
  • 1/4 small red capsicum, thinly sliced
  • 8 basil leaves, roughly torn
  • 4 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese


  1. Spread 2 slices of bread with pesto.
  2. Place half of the remaining ingredients on each slice before finishing with the remaining slices of bread.
  3. Cut sandwich in half.


Replace Swiss cheese with 4 baby boccincini, thinly sliced. Replace pesto with Baba ghanoush (eggplant dip) or hummus.

Serving Suggestion:

Toast in a sandwich maker until heated through and golden brown.

Healthy tip!

Try mustard instead of mayonnaise to add extra flavour to your salads and sandwiches.
