Tuscan Open Face Sandwiches

It was just a few weeks ago that our good friends, Jeremy & Sara Schwertfeger, joined us for an afternoon by the pool.  I sent Jeremy a text to see what they were up to…and little did I know, they were just waiting for a text to be invited over to the pool!  Ahh…our universes must have been aligned.  🙂

With the sun beating down and the yard work complete for the day, I was exhausted, ready to relax…and my Red Wine Spritzers were ready to go!  Lucky for us, Jeremy and Sara surprised us with an AMAZING new snack…one that they enjoyed on their trip to Italy last fall.  (Interestingly enough, they made their trip to heaven…I mean, Italy, just 2 weeks before we did!).  I couldn’t resist sharing their Tuscan Open Faced Sandwiches with you…because it is a new favorite of mine!  Thank you J and Sara!


Recipe by Jeremy & Sara Schwertfeger

Servings Vary

  • Crackers (Sara brought Triscuits Fire Roasted Tomato and Bretons)
  • Classico Basil Pesto
  • Fresh Mozzarella Cheese, sliced
  • 1-2 Green Apples, thinly sliced
  • Deli Turkey, thinly sliced

Prep your ingredients and begin building your sandwich. 

Layer green apple, turkey, mozzarella, and top with a dallop of pesto! 


Open wide and take a big bite!


DELICIOUS!!  You have got to try it…and you have got to check out Sara’s blog as well.  Sara is a Registered Dietician who specializes in Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching.  Her blog address is: http://www.sarabconsulting.blogspot.com/

And to thank her for this amazing treat, I decided to pot her some basil!  As you can see, my basil is still growing and dividing beyond control. 

With strong new roots, I started Sara her own Basil source.  After all, she is one person I thought might enjoy cooking with it as much as I do! 

Thanks again Sara! 

Indulge.  In Life.  In Love.  In Food.
