Makes 4 open sandwiches


• 6 tbsp alfalfa sprouts
• 1 whole wheat foot long bread (12")
• 1 medium yellow capsicum
• 1 medium red capsicum
• 1 medium green capsicum
• 2 1/4 tsp olive oil
• salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
• 12 tomato slices
• 2 tbsp deseeded and sliced black olives
• 1 tsp dried oregano
• salt to taste
• 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
• 2 tbsp grated mozzarella cheese


To Be Mixed Into A Marinade

• 1 1/2 tbsp vinegar
• 1/2 tbsp olive oil
