Mediterranean Veggies and Avocado on a Roll

I brought these rolls from store today hoping to make some kind of sandwich. Wasn't sure what kind yet so I started looking in the refrigerator. Had few fresh veggies on hand and also some jarred ones so I mixed and matched a few and came up with this Mediterranean idea. Well I wasn't entirely sure what should I name this sandwich but since it had most of the veggies that goes in Mediterranean salad I thought why not? And since avocado is my favorite, added that too to make it extra special.

2 Rolls
1/2 Cucumber Sliced
1/2 Tomato Sliced
1/2 Small Onion Sliced thinly
1/2 Roasted Red Bell Pepper(I used jarred)
10 Kalamata Olives Pitted and Sliced
1/2 Avocado sliced
2 Green Leaf Lettuce
3 Tbs Mayonnaise

For Red Wine Vinaigrette
2 Tsp red wine vinegar
1/2 Tsp Dijon mustard
4 Tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 Tsp honey
Salt and Pepper for taste

The method is actually pretty straight forward. Keep all your veggies ready. 

Whisk all the ingredients together for vinaigrette . Keep the vinaigrette aside. Take both the rolls, split them apart, spread mayo on all 4 rolls. Start layering the roll with veggies. With lettuce going first and then adding veggies on top of it. Lastly with a spoon spread the vinaigrette all over veggies and close it with other half roll and serve. This sandwich is so simple and easy to make and tasty too! Enjoy!
