  • I cut the sodium by substituting half the mayo with plain yogurt and making my own pesto. The rest was as written. It's a great spread for many different types of sandwiches. - 7/19/10

  • I used pesto I made using basil from my garden, a fresh whole wheat boule from the farmers' market, arugula, and tomatoes from my garden. As an open-faced sandwich it presents beautifully and it was a big hit in the taste department too. - 7/19/10

  • Delicious! Everyone loved the pesto sauce. I would recommend cutting some of the calories by not putting the top bread of the sandwich, that way you have slightly less carbs and can eat a little more of the veggies. Just put the bread, pesto, lettues, then tomato. Delicious! - 6/6/10
