Summer Vegetarian Sandwich, #OXOGreenSaver & Melissa’s Cucumbers

The meaty texture of baby portobello mushrooms combined with creamy avocado, crunchy cucumbers, and fresh micro greens makes a substantial sandwich. Swiss cheese adds richness to this summer lunch. This version is especially good on whole wheat or multigrain bread.

One week ago I have received a package from OXO with GreenSaver container and fresh cucumbers from Melissa’s Produce. I did not have a chance to try new recipes with cucumbers, so I have stored them in refrigerator in the GreenSaver and left for a business trip. Several days later when I came back home my cucumbers were still fresh and juicy and I made several meals using them. I am happy to have proper storage for my fruits and vegetables, especially in summer time, when we eat a lot of salads and berry desserts.

OXO GreenSaver solves produce storage challenges:

Serves: 1


  • 2 slices of bread, lightly toasted
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise sauce
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, peeled, minced
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced
  • 2 baby portobello mushrooms, sliced, sauté lightly
  • 1 Melissa's cucumber, sliced
  • fresh micro greens
  • 2 slices of Swiss cheese 



In a small bowl mix together the mayonnaise sauce and garlic.


Brush one side of each bread slice with garlic mayonnaise and cover with a slice of cheese.


Arrange the cucumbers, avocado, mushrooms and micro greens on one slice of bread.


Top it with the remaining bread slice.


Place in preheated oven 350F for a few minutes, just until the cheese starts melting.


Transfer the sandwich to a cutting board and cut in half.


Serve immediately.

I was sent an OXO GreenSaver Produce Keeper and Melissa’s Produce bags of fresh cucumbers. I was not paid for this review. The sandwich recipe is my own creation.
