I am particularly fond of cheese, and since I’m a bit of a saltaholic as well, Feta is one of my favorites. Typically, it’s just my mom, Laura, and I home for lunch and this simple Feta Basil Sandwich Recipe for two is perfect for us. It’s a nice lunch to prepare if you have a girlfriend over for am afternoon visit. Just be sure to have a pitcher of iced tea ready to quench the salty goodness of the Feta and olives in the sandwich.
This sandwich is so fresh and colorful. It transports me to the Mediterranean, and is a real pick-me-up on a cold winter day like today.
You could probably stretch this recipe and get 3-4 sandwiches out of it, but I like it so much that I tend to get a bit greedy with it.

Who does not love cheese? It is just one of my absolute favorite foods and I like it in most of my meals especially in sandwiches, pastas and other baked dishes. I have to say, Feta is one of my common substitutes for other salty cheeses. Anyway, thank you for this incredible recipe. This really looks so good and is definitely a must-try!
