Name: Amount:
plus 1 tsp balsamic vinegar 1 Tbsp
canola oil 5 tsp
medium garlic cloves, minced 2
of 16oz multigrain Italian bread, halved lengthwise, and then each half cut into 0.50
four pieces
medium whole green onions, finely chopped 2
(1/2 oz) loosely packed fresh spinach leaves 1 cup
lb deli-sliced oven roasted turkey breast 0.25
medium tomato, cut into 8 slices 1
thin slices (3 oz total) reduced-fat Swiss cheese 4
Canola cooking spray
halved strawberries 3 cups

Combine vinegar, 4 teaspoons canola oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Stir until well blended. Drizzle one side of each bread slice with vinegar mixture and top four bread slices (oil side up) with equal amounts of filling ingredients in the order listed, beginning with green onions. Top with remaining bread slices (oil side down) and press down slightly.


Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray, add 1/2 teaspoon of oil, tilt skillet to coat bottom lightly, and place over medium heat. Add 2 sandwiches, then place dinner plate and 4 bread plates on top of the sandwiches. Cook 4 minutes, turn sandwiches, top with plates, and cook 2-3 minutes or until cheese melts.


Place on a serving platter, cover with foil to keep warm, repeat with remaining 1/2 teaspoon canola oil and two sandwiches. Serve with strawberry halves on the side.
