Copycat Panera Mediterranean Sandwich

Looking for a delicious and healthy sandwich? Look no further than this copycat Panera Mediterranean sandwich! This recipe is easy to make and uses simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand. The key to this sandwich is the use of peppadew peppers. Peppadew peppers are a type of pickled pepper that is native to South Africa. They are small, sweet, and slightly spicy. I love the way they add a touch of brightness and acidity to the sandwich.

This sandwich is perfect for a quick lunch or a light dinner. It is also a great option for packing for a picnic or a day at the beach.  My favorite veggie sandwich – light, healthy and so flavorful!

  • For a vegan version, use vegan feta cheese.
  • If you don’t have arugula, you can use any type of leafy green, such as spinach or lettuce.
  • You can also add other vegetables to your sandwich, such as avocado, sprouts, or olives.
  • Pretty much all grocery stores sell Peppadew peppers at the olive bar. If you’re local grocery store doesn’t sell them, I’ve also seen them at the olive bar in Whole Foods or roasted red peppers can be used.
  • Enjoy!
