National Sandwich Day


Celebrate #nationalsandwichday with a delicious #sunsmart sandwich, of course! This sandwich has all the melted, cheesy flavor of grilled cheese - with added benefits. Whole-wheat bread provides filling fiber, avocado adds healthy monounsaturated fats and a punch of antioxidants, and sun-dried tomatoes bring a dose of the powerful antioxidant lycopene. Extra-virgin olive oil replaces butter and incorporates heart-healthy fats into this delish sandwich.

This grilled cheese is a Sol La La #SolFood fave! Give it a try.
