Best 5 Sandwiches for Spring and Summer

Summertime calls with vibrant sunshine, cheerful moods, and a general inclination towards light, fresh, and satisfying foods. One of the best ways to satiate your summer hunger while keeping things healthy and light is through sandwiches. They are easy to prepare, versatile, and packed with nutrition. So, let’s get ready to this delicious list of the top 5 best sandwiches to prepare during the spring and summer season.

Best 5 Sandwiches for Spring and Summer

1. Caprese Sandwich

The Caprese Sandwich is a light and fresh dish perfect for spring and summer. This Italian-inspired sandwich uses minimal ingredients, focusing on quality to bring forward bright and savory flavors. Here’s a simple recipe to create your own Caprese sandwich.


  • 1 baguette or 4 slices of ciabatta bread
  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Salt to taste


  1. Prepare the Bread: Cut the baguette or ciabatta bread lengthwise. If desired, you can lightly toast the bread to add a little crunch.
  2. Slice the Tomatoes and Mozzarella: Slice the tomatoes and the mozzarella cheese into even slices. They should be roughly the same thickness for the best texture and balance of flavors.
  3. Assemble the Sandwich: Start by layering slices of fresh mozzarella cheese on the bottom half of the bread. Then, add a layer of ripe tomato slices. Season the tomatoes lightly with a pinch of salt to bring out their natural flavors. Next, add a layer of fresh basil leaves.
  4. Add the Final Touches: Drizzle a generous amount of extra virgin olive oil over the assembled ingredients. Following the olive oil, drizzle a bit of balsamic glaze for an added sweet and tangy flavor that pairs wonderfully with the other ingredients.
  5. Serve: Place the top half of the bread on and press gently. Slice the sandwich into individual portions, if needed, and serve immediately.
2. Avocado BLT Sandwich

A BLT sandwich, standing for bacon, lettuce, and tomato, is a classic staple of American cuisine but add an avocado and you will have magic 🙂 It’s simple yet incredibly satisfying, offering a perfect balance of flavors with its salty bacon, crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes and creamy avocado. Here’s a straightforward recipe for making your own Avocado BLT sandwich at home or for a summer lunch or picnic.


  • 4 slices of bread (whole grain, white, or your preference)
  • 4-6 slices of bacon
  • Lettuce leaves (romaine or iceberg works great)
  • 1 medium ripe tomato
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Cook the Bacon: Begin by cooking your bacon slices in a frying pan over medium heat until they are crispy. Remember to turn them over occasionally for an even cook. Once cooked, place them aside on a paper towel to soak up any excess grease.
  2. Prepare the Bread: While your bacon is cooking, you can start preparing your bread. Toast your bread slices to your preferred level of crunchiness. Once toasted, spread a layer of mayonnaise on one side of each slice.
  3. Slice the Avocado and Tomato: Cut your tomato and avocado into even slices.
  4. Assemble the Sandwich: Start assembling your sandwich by placing lettuce leaves on one slice of the bread. Next, add your tomato slices and season them with a pinch of salt and pepper to bring out their flavor. Layer your crispy bacon slices on top of the tomato. Finish by adding a layer of avocado slices.
  5. Serve: Place the second slice of bread on top, mayonnaise side down, and press gently. If you like, cut your sandwich in half diagonally for easier eating and serve immediately.
3. Classic Egg Salad Sandwich

The Egg Salad Sandwich is a timeless classic that’s not only easy to prepare but is also packed with protein, making it a healthy option. It’s creamy, flavorful, and perfect for a quick lunch, especially during the spring and summer season.


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon mustard (Dijon or yellow)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives or green onions (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of bread (whole grain, white, or your preference)
  • Lettuce leaves and slices of tomato (optional)


  1. Cook the Eggs: To start off, you need to hard-boil your eggs. Place the eggs in a saucepan, cover them with cold water, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, cover the saucepan and remove it from the heat. Let the eggs stand in the hot water for about 9-12 minutes. Then drain, cool in ice water and peel.
  2. Prepare the Egg Salad: Once your eggs are cooled and peeled, chop them finely or roughly based on your preference. In a bowl, combine the chopped eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, chives (or green onions), salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Sandwich: Spread the egg salad over a slice of bread. If you prefer, you can add lettuce leaves and tomato slices for some added freshness and crunch. Cover with the second slice of bread.
  4. Serve: Cut your sandwich diagonally, if desired, and serve immediately or refrigerate to allow the flavors to meld together even more.
4. Classic Tuna Salad Sandwich

Tuna salad sandwiches are a simple, nutritious staple that’s perfect for a quick lunch or dinner. This classic version uses just a few basic ingredients but is packed full of flavor. A refreshing take perfect for the summer.


  • 1 can (150 gr.) of tuna, drained
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 stalk celery, finely diced
  • 1/4 small onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices of bread (whole wheat, white, or your preference)
  • Lettuce leaves and slices of tomato


  1. Prepare the Tuna Salad: In a bowl, combine the drained tuna, mayonnaise, diced celery, and onion. If you’re using mustard, add it now. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Assemble the Sandwich: Lay out two slices of bread. Spread half of the tuna salad mixture on each slice. Add lettuce leaves and tomato slices on top of the tuna salad, if desired.
  3. Serve: Cover each sandwich with the remaining slices of bread. You can cut the sandwich in half diagonally for easier eating if you’d like. Serve immediately, or wrap tightly and refrigerate for later.
4. Freshly Made Chicken Sandwich

A freshly made chicken sandwich is a great option for a quick, nutritious, and filling meal. This simple recipe uses grilled chicken breast, which is a great source of lean protein, and fresh veggies for a refreshing crunch. Enjoy this sandwich for lunch or dinner during spring and summer months.


  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 slices of bread (whole wheat, white, or your preference)
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Slices of tomato
  • Slices of cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise or a healthier alternative like Greek yogurt
  • Optional: slices of cheese, avocado, or bacon for extra flavor and texture


  1. Prepare the Chicken: Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chicken breast and cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle. Remove from heat and let it rest for a few minutes, then slice it into thin strips.
  2. Assemble the Sandwich: Spread a tablespoon of mayonnaise (or Greek yogurt) onto each slice of bread. On one slice, place the lettuce leaves, then add slices of tomato and cucumber. Arrange the sliced chicken on top. If you’re using any optional ingredients like cheese, avocado, or bacon, add them now.
  3. Serve: Top with the second slice of bread, and press down gently to hold everything together. Cut the sandwich in half if you’d like, and serve immediately while the chicken is still warm.
