Summer gatherings involve cooking, and that cooking is usually done on the grill. However, today I am going to talk about a great option for summer gatherings that requires no cooking – a sandwich bar.

The great thing about having a summer sandwich bar is the only thing you really have to do is gather the ingredients together and put them out for your guests. Entertaining couldn’t be easier. The key however, to an amazing sandwich is to make sure you have a variety of amazing ingredients.

I went shopping at my local Kroger store (Smith’s) to gather ingredients for my sandwich bar. Now, first thing I needed was a base for the sandwich. You could use a variety of breads but I opted for a variety of rolls for my sandwich bar. I picked up some from the bakery at my Kroger. They had a bag of 12 assorted rolls for $2.49 which is about the same price for a nice loaf of bread. I love the variety that was in the package. It had wheat and white rolls, some plain and some with toppings.

Next up is the meat. Now you can go get your meat from the deli at the grocery store or they also have some amazing meats in the lunch meat section of the store. Whatever you choose just be sure to get a variety. Ham, turkey, and roast beef tend to be a good standard to have. To change things up though I went for chicken instead of turkey.

Next up, you need some good sliced cheese! I love Sargento® Sliced Cheese for my sandwiches. I love the convenience of pre-sliced cheese and that it is ready to use. I also love that Sargento® Sliced Cheeses are made from real, natural cheese and they have an amazing variety to choose from. They even have flavors like colby-pepper jack, tomato & basil jack, and garlic & herb jack.

Then, you need to get some sandwich spreads. Mayonnaise and mustard are a must in my book but then add in some other fun spreads. My family loves chipotle mayonnaise which you can just find in the condiment section of the store. We also love pesto mayonnaise. This is simple to make, just add a couple of tablespoons of pesto to a 1/2 cup of mayonnaise. Just peruse the condiment section of the store and see what strikes your fancy; even oil, vinegar, or Italian dressing are great options.

Next, you need toppings. Now this is where you can get crazy. You can have as little or as many of these as you want. Here is a list of suggestions for you.

Toppings:

  • lettuce
  • spinach
  • tomato slices
  • pickles
  • cucumber slices
  • sliced olives
  • banana peppers
  • pickled jalapeño slices
  • green bell peppers
  • red onion slices

So for one of your summer gatherings give a sandwich bar a try. It really is an easy no fuss way to entertain.
