Tomato, Pesto & Cheddar Pretzel Sandwich

Tomato, Pesto and Cheddar Pretzel Sandwich

Remember last year when I spent a whole week talking about sandwiches?  Well, I seem to have returned to my sandwich kick and something tells me it has to do with birds chirping, sun shining and spring thunderstorms.

We have had all three of those things happening lately and for some reason, I am craaaaving sandwiches again.  I made these salted pretzel rolls with the pure intention of making sandwiches with them.

Tomato, Pesto and Cheddar Pretzel Sandwich This sandwich combination just screams spring and summer to me.  It’s so simple too; barely a recipe.  I lightly toasted the pretzel roll, slathered it with (store-bought) pesto on each side, added some sliced tomato, and sharp white cheddar cheese.

What flavors come to mind when you think of spring and summer?

    Pesto on a sandwich beats mayo any day.

    Sometimes the most classic flavor combos are the best! You just can’t go wrong with tomato+pesto+cheese. And on these soft, fluffy pretzel buns? I’m sold! Let the picnic season begin.
    PS. Spring flavor to me is all about asparagus, bright berries, green tea. Fresh, fresh, fresh is back at last!

    Oh, how I love a good sandwich. I want this so badly. And it puts my plain, dry, turkey on regular white I had for lunch today to shame!

    I love pesto and tomatoes! I eat a tomato almost every day….like most people eat an apple a day :) And this bread. Cassie, so good! Pinning (and I almost never pin savory food…lol…but this is just too good not to!)

    I just saw somewhere that April is sandwich month, Cassie. Although I realize every month/day is devoted to something, it certainly does have me thinking about sandwiches! This is an awesome combination!
