ZLT (Zucchini, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich) / Panino di Zucchine, Lattuga e Pomodoro



  • 1 cup packed arugula leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Grinding black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup Filippo Berio extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium size zucchini, cut lengthwise into eight 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 4 romaine lettuce leaves
  • 2 plum tomatoes, cut intoslices
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and sliced into rounds


  1. Combine the arugola, garlic, and sea salt in a food processor and pulse quickly two or three times. Slowly pour the olive oil through the feed tube with the motor running until a paste consistency is formed. You may not need all the olive oil. Transfer the paste to a small bowl and stir in the pepper.
  2. Make 4 sandwiches by spreading a little of the pesto on one zucchini slice. Top with a lettuce leaf, 2 slices of tomato and two or three cucumber slices. Spread another zucchini slice with pesto and place it on top of the cucumbers. Cut in half widthwise and serve.
