Healthy Sandwiches, Minus the Bread
Whether we're cutting carbs, going gluten-free or scaling back on sodium, fewer loaves of bread are landing in our shopping carts these days. But what does that mean for our favorite hand-held meal, the sandwich? Though you might think that a sandwich, by definition, requires two slabs of bread, these breadless creations prove your sandwich days are far from over. Cutting out the loaves, buns and slices? These ingenious substitutes are the best things since sliced bread:
Your go-to tuna sandwich may typically come swaddled in slices of bread, but Breadless Cucumber Tuna Salad Sandwiches won’t leave you missing the carbs. Instead, these high-protein tuna sandwiches come with the added juicy crunch of English cucumbers, and they are best assembled and served straight away.
