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?
