You can also use this list to create a salad. Instead of using a bread base, you can include a carbohydrate such as whole wheat crackers, rye croutons, or whole wheat pita chips.

Cut the bread in interesting shapes like triangles, circles or rectangles.

Scoop the center out of a round unsliced bread to make a bread bowl then add your sandwich fixings into the bowl.

Don't like bread? Use the outer leaves of  ice burg or romaine lettuce for a lettuce wrap sandwich.
