A great lunch for me. I made a couple of simple substitutions to use what I already had on hand. Instead of the purple cabbage only I used some coleslaw mix I already had. Instead of the cream cheese mixture I used vegetable garden cream cheese that I already had on hand. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the squash:
  2. Slice yellow squash lengthwise to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and set aside for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Make the slaw:
  4. In a medium bowl, combine oil, lemon juice, garlic, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, sugar(if using), and whisk until well blended. Add cabbage and toss until coated with dressing.
  5. Make the cheese spread:
  6. In a small bowl, combine goat cheese, cream cheese, and green onions with a spoon until thoroughly blended.
  7. Assemble the sandwiches:
  8. On a work surface, place 4 slices of bread and spread each with 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture. Pat the squash slices dry with a paper towel and place them, the avocado, tomato, squash, red-cabbage slaw, and sprouts in layers on the prepared bread. Top each sandwich with a slice of the remaining bread, cut each sandwich in half, and serve.
