Throwing together a rustic sandwich for lunch makes me feel so European. Simplicity equals elegance here and good bread is a must! This delicious fresh sammy will be on the plate in 10 minutes, start to finish.

Grilled Summer Squash Sandwich

  • 1 T coconut oil (you could use olive oil but I love the nutty flavor that coconut lends)
  • 1 summer squash, cut in half and then sliced lengthwise
  • a pinch of salt
  • crusty French or Italian bread
  • olive tapenade
  • handful of fresh basil leaves2013-07-15 00.51.17
  1. in a nonstick pan, heat the coconut oil until pan is very hot
  2. add the sliced summer squash and season with a little salt
  3. brown the squash on each side – it should be tender once browned
  4. spread the tapenade on one piece of the bread, stack the summer squash and whole basil leaves on top and cover with the other slice of bread
