What a great sandwich! I think this is a case where less is more when you are adding the veggies, as it would be easy to overfill it. Everything works so well together though, so don't skip on anything! A super filling and fresh meal!

PUL Team - March 20, 2024, 9:06 p.m.

So happy to hear, Rob, thanks for taking the time to share the review!

It's okay but I prefer other sandwich recipes from the app, this one doesn't taste special to me, probably because I like raw veggies to an extent but get bored when there's too much :)

This sandwich is so good I'm crying. It hits all the right spots and fills u up. Totally love it.

Damilola Olowokure - Dec. 28, 2023, 3:27 p.m.

It's very, very tasty. It's one of the best sandwiches I've ever tasted. Perfect for lunch, breakfast and dinner.

Sophie Kendall - Dec. 3, 2023, 4:15 p.m.

Really good

Danielle - Dec. 2, 2023, 12:39 a.m.

This was a quick and simple meal to put together. I mashed the avocado into the hummus and only added tomatoes and lettuce to it.

Danielle - Oct. 24, 2023, 12:12 a.m.

I liked it. It felt very healthy and tasty. I served with vegetable soup. Very nutritious.

Maryann Hreha - Aug. 4, 2023, 7:45 p.m.

Love this sandwich!
It is so fresh and crisp. I used the recipe for lemon garlic hummus for the base. The chili sauce adds just the right amount of sweetness. Delicious!

Danielle J - July 19, 2023, 9:57 a.m.

This sandwich is beyond delicious and easy to make. 😋

Elise - July 10, 2023, 6:41 a.m.

For "fresh"-lovers it's a great dinner🤍

Michelle D - June 27, 2023, 5:33 a.m.

So easy, quick, and delicious! and love the colour once assembled! Substituted the sweet chili with siraracha mayo and very tasty

Alex - April 27, 2023, 9:50 p.m.

Yummy and easy :)

Sharri Meeks - Feb. 13, 2023, 6:53 p.m.

Really good and I did substitute red bell pepper for tomato as I’m not a fan. Very quick and easy. I do love on these recipes that you hit the arrow and it gives you substitutions.

PUL Team - Feb. 13, 2023, 7:16 p.m.

Thanks for the kind words and feedback, Sharri, it's so appreciated 😃

Scaff - Aug. 6, 2022, 6:23 a.m.

so yummy! This will be one of my go-to sandwiches for visiting family and friends.

PUL Team - Aug. 6, 2022, 6:58 p.m.

So happy to hear, Scaff - enjoy!

Andrea - June 15, 2022, 6:29 p.m.

I CANNOT express enough how grateful I am! You are literally a saint, love! 😍 I am obsessed with Pick Up Limes. Thank you for sharing! 🫶😘

PUL Team - June 17, 2022, 7:28 a.m.

Oh, Andrea, thank YOU 💛

Asmaa Vantra - June 10, 2022, 11:29 p.m.

I made this for lunch in focaccia bread. Very colourful and tasty sandwich. Will definitely remake. I didnt put cucumber though. Also used tomato and chilli jam

PUL Team - June 13, 2022, 4:10 p.m.

Ooo sounds incredible, Asmaa, thanks for sharing your experience with the sandwich 😃

Lindsey - June 1, 2022, 4:55 p.m.

I did have a bit of trouble keeping everything on my GF bread, so I was a mess while eating this... but worth it! Trying to figure out a way to solve this minor issue so that it will be a sandwich I can eat on the go, with a friend, or at work/school. The taste was SOOO GOOD!😀

PUL Team - June 1, 2022, 9:30 p.m.

Hey there, Lindsey, perhaps a grilling the sandwich so it's a bit more squished together, trying a different brand of bread that may be more sturdy, or turning the sandwich into a wrap are some ideas! So glad it's still be enjoyed though 🙂

Gabby - May 29, 2022, 11:28 p.m.

One of my go-to sandwich recipes! I tend to switch around the veggies (bell peppers, various greens and herbs, beets, purple cabbage or radicchio, plain and pickled carrots, tomatoes, etc.) and sauces, but the hummus, cucumbers, avocado, and pickled jalapenos and/or olives are the essential ingredients for me!

PUL Team - May 30, 2022, 6:29 a.m.

Mmm love the adjustments, Gabby! Thank you 😃

Daniele - May 15, 2022, 11:24 p.m.

This sandwich was so good! I was doubtful whether I'd feel satisfied after a veggie sandwich but this really hit the spot! I feel so good after eating it. It's refreshing and satisfying.

PUL Team - May 16, 2022, 4:32 a.m.

Woohoo! So happy to hear, Daniele 🤗

Sara - April 4, 2022, 6:21 p.m.

Hi. There is a link under the ingredients that says buy ingredients on amazon fresh... But they didn't look like the same products you use in your pictures. The sweet chili sauce for example, the first 3 ingredients are: water, sugar, wheat. There are 19 ingredients total in the sauce, which seems very highly processed to me. I was wondering if you, a nutritionist, have vetted the products you are recommending people to purchase and that you support people eating these on a regular basis?

Also, what sweet chili sauce do you, personally, use?

PUL Team - April 5, 2022, 4:15 p.m.

Hey there, Sara, thank you for taking the time to share the constructive question with us. The amazon fresh button serves as an option for those who find online groceries more accessible, while also providing insight on what products might look like. The button will revert to different products depending on the region and what's available, so we're unable to monitor this as closely. We kindly encourage using alternative products if desired and shopping wherever is most accessible, whether that be Amazon or elsewhere 🙂

If it helps in the interim, the sweet chili sauce we tend to use is a house brand from our local grocery store, and the first 3 ingredients are similar with water, sugar, and paprika. Feel free to also omit the sauce or replace it was an alternative sauce if desired. We hope this helps for now, Sara, and thanks again!

sara - April 6, 2022, 6:07 p.m.

I see. Thanks for explaining. That's interesting that your chili sauce actually has the sweet and the chili as 2 of the 3 first ingredients. Sounds like it and the rest of the food you eat personally all taste and are better than the Amazon options/ethics.

We didn't have all the ingredients, but we really enjoyed using hummus as a condiment on a sandwich (we added a little mustard, too - the avocado wasn't ripe enough). My hubby is considering going vegan or at least meat free, so this was his first sandwich that didn't have meat and cheese and he loved it so much we had it again the next day! :D (plus to use up the ingredients, lol)

Minchi - March 20, 2022, 6:50 p.m.

I tried this for lunch and I liked it a lot! This will be my new lunch staple for awhile. Thank you, Sadia for creating these delicious, yet simple recipes!

PUL Team - March 21, 2022, 1:49 a.m.

We're so glad it was enjoyed, Minchi, thank you!

Lily - March 17, 2022, 5:47 a.m.

Really delicious! I used homemade hummus, lettuce instead of spinach, black olives instead of green, pickled red onions instead of raw onions, and I also added some sliced red bell peppers. I forgot the carrots and omitted the sweet chili sauce. Thanks for the quick lunch idea!

PUL Team - March 17, 2022, 5:38 p.m.

Mmm sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing your experience with it, Lily 😃

MDP - Feb. 19, 2022, 11:08 a.m.

How do you use sweet chilli sauce in this ?

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2022, 9:28 p.m.

Hey MDP, you can use sweet chilli sauce as one of the sandwich fillings if desired. We enjoy spreading in on one of the slices of bread :)

Aura - Nov. 27, 2021, 12:53 a.m.

🥰👍🏼Thank you.

Aura - Nov. 23, 2021, 6:58 p.m.

Your meals are all so fantastic!!! Do you bake your own bread or do you purchase those amazing loafs in the Netherlands? Thank you for sharing your knowledge and photos!

PUL Team - Nov. 24, 2021, 8 p.m.

Hi there, Aura, thank you for the kind words! It means so much. Although it varies, the bread pictured for this one is a Stevig spelt bread we get from a local grocery store called Albert Heijn 😊

Linda - Oct. 16, 2021, 4:48 p.m.

This is my new go to favourite sandwich. Love the combination of flavours.

Rene - July 29, 2021, 7:42 a.m.

I just love this sandwich! It has great flavor and is easy to make.

Ellie - July 26, 2021, 9:13 p.m.

I have made a version of this sandwich for a while, but I love the addition of the green olives in this one. It's easy to throw together for a quick no-cook lunch, and it has amazing flavor.

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 4:03 a.m.

So glad you're enjoying the sandwich, Ellie, thank you :)

amber - July 25, 2021, 7:50 p.m.

my favorite sandwich! the sweet chili sauce makes this sandwich! don’t skip it! we toast the bread first, skip the olives, and sub greenleaf for spinach.

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 5:59 p.m.

We appreciate this so much, Amber - thanks for sharing 😊

Mary - July 11, 2021, 12:01 a.m.

A family favorite and our go to sandwich when traveling. When in a hurry this is a great meal to fill you up fast. More often than not I have Greek olives instead of green olives......either type of olives keeps this sandwich delicious.

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 4:33 a.m.

Ooo so lovely to hear, Mary, thanks for the review and sharing 😃

Chelsea - July 8, 2021, 7 p.m.

To be honest, I'm not a huge sandwich person. But this veggie sandwich was so delicious it shocked me. So simple, but not in a bad way! It allows the individual flavors to shine. This recipe helped me fall more in love with honey mustard and get creative on how I use it~

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 3:30 p.m.

What an incredible review, Chelsea! We're so happy the recipe was enjoyed and appreciate you took the time to share this with us 😃

Lei'Ina McLaughlin - June 27, 2021, 4:57 p.m.

I love everything you do! You've inspired me to take care of myself by putting what I eat in my belly. Where did you get the seeded whole grain bread? I realy want to buy it!

PUL Team - June 29, 2021, 2:05 a.m.

Thank you for the kind words, Lei'Ina, this makes us so happy to hear! The bread is a Stevig spelt bread we get from a local grocery store called Albert Heijn - hope this helps 🙂

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 4:38 p.m.

This is the tastiest sandwich ever! 😁

JW - June 12, 2021, 4:24 a.m.

Best and yummiest. I used toasted pita pockets.
