So many wonderful ideas for sandwiches. Always colourful and tasty ideas.

Don't worry, for those who wanted some meat in an earlier comment, simply add the ones of your choice to the mix.

I am amazed again and again by the recipes I find here on Care2. These look really good too! I don't see the recipe for the sandwich in the picture though, It looks especially good. I know the tomato and red onion combination on any sandwich is fantastic. So is cucumber, but I have never combined them all.
