Ingredients

  • 4 ciabatta rolls
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil**
  • 8 ounces goat cheese, spreadable*
  • 12-16 asparagus spears
  • 1 lemon
  • 12-16 kalamata olives, chopped
  • 1 handful salad greens

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 to toast the rolls. Zest the lemon and squeeze the juice into a medium bowl. Slice asparagus into rounds and toss into lemon juice, add salt and pepper to taste. Chop the olives.
  • Cut the rolls in half*** and drizzle with olive oil (garlic flavored if you have it!). Toast in the oven for about 5 minutes, until golden.
  • Spread 2 ounces of goat cheese on one side of each roll.
  • Put the asparagus on top of the cheese lay (to hold it in place). Top with olives, zest and greens. 
  • If wrapping for a picnic, wrap each sandwich tightly so the filling doesn't fall out.

Notes

  • Olive oil: this is delicious with garlic flavored olive oil, since it's nice and delicate without having an overpowering garlic flavor.
  • Goat cheese: I like herbed goat cheese, something like this.
  • Cut rolls in half: You can also cut part way through, leaving one edge intact, so stuff doesn't fall out as easily.
