Cream cheese Tomato Spinach Sandwich

Cream cheese is not just for bagels!

Cream cheese, tomato and spinach come together in this simple yet delicious sandwich. They are light and refreshing — the perfect sandwich for summer, no matter how little time you have to make them!

My colleague, Bob, brought these to our office party. They were so yummy and I couldn't stop with just one!

In my opinion, cream cheese pulls it off very well. It adds a very slight tang, body, and flavor, it also adds creaminess and moisture. Fresh tomatoes and spinach give these sandwiches a colorful appeal. Refrigerating the sandwich helps the juice from the tomatoes to sink into the cream cheese giving it a mild flavor profile.

They're perfect for brunch, lunch or to cut up and serve as appetizers.  Slather and layer it all on a perfect slice of bread and you have yourself a deliciously decadent sandwich. It’s quick, easy and tasty.
