Ham & Salad Ribbons Sandwich

With all the goodness of a salad sandwich but also the fun of being a kid – eat it as is, or open it up and ‘slurp’ each ribbon in as my kids love to do.


  • 2 slices Wonder White bread

  • 1 tblsp. light cream cheese, softened

  • 1 slice ham

  • ½ carrot, peeled

  • ½ Lebanese cucumber, ends trimmed

  • ¼ red capsicum, de-seeded


  • 1.

    Spread each piece of bread with the softened cream cheese.

  • 2.

    Cut the slice of ham into 2-3cm ribbons and pile loosely onto one piece of bread.

  • 3.

    Use a vegetable peeler to cut very thin slices of the carrot, cucumber and capsicum. Pile loosely on top of the ham.

  • 4.

    Top with the other piece of bread and cut into triangles.
