Goat Cheese, Arugula and Roasted Red Pepper Sandwiches

Goat Cheese, Balsamic-Roasted Pepper & Arugula Sandwiches

Serves 4
Goat cheese has less fat than hard cheese, and using an herbed version adds extra flavor without fat and calories. Arugula is packed with fiber and nutrients, and the red peppers contain beta-carotene.

4 6-inch whole-grain ciabatta rolls, split
½ cup (4 oz.) herbed goat cheese
3 cups loosely packed baby arugula leaves
4 whole roasted peppers from a 24-oz. jar, drained and sliced in half
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


Prep: 5 minutes / Start to Finish: 10 minutes
Spread 2 tablespoons goat cheese on the bottom half of each roll. Stack about ¾ cup arugula leaves on top of the cheese, then gently lay two pepper halves on top of the arugula. Sprinkle the top half of each roll with about 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar. Close sandwiches, wrap in wax paper, then slice in half before wrapping in aluminum foil or plastic wrap to take on-the-go.
