This is based off of one of my favorite sandwiches that is sold in a nearby grab 'n go place. Use your favorite tzatziki sauce, if desired.

Loved this sandwich!! I used a store bought Tzatziki made with greek yogurt, to save a step, and used cheddar and jalapeno jack for the cheeses. Made on a multi-grain ciabatta bun. I was taking it to work, so I prepped everything and made the sandwich, except put the tzatziki in a small container, and the tomatoes in another small container, to avoid sogginess. Worked out perfect! Love this sandwich, and ended up making it for quite a few lunches, as I had lots of tzatziki to use (lucky me!) Thanks for another great recipe, Starry! Made for Veggie Swap #61.
- 1 foccacia bun
- tzatziki, sauce (your favorite, or see below)
- 1 slice provolone cheese
- 1 slice cheddar cheese
- 1⁄4 red pepper, sliced
- 1 slice large tomatoes
- 2 rings large red onions
- 1⁄4 cucumber, sliced
- 1⁄2 cup mixed greens
Tzatziki Sauce (make night before for best flavor)
- 1 (6 ounce) container fat free Greek yogurt
- 1⁄2 cucumber, seeds removed, grated and squeezed so as much liquid as possible is removed
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper, to taste

- Split open foccacia bun. Spread tzatziki sauce on top half of bun and cover with provolone slice. Place cheddar slice on bottom half of bun.
- Layer the remaining ingredients over the bottom half of the bun.

- For tzatziki sauce: Combine all ingredients and mix well. Allow flavors to blend in fridge overnight. If using the recipe included, it will make more than needed for one sandwich.
