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 small red capsicum, thinly sliced
  • 8 basil leaves, roughly torn

  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.
