Disclosure: Arnold® provided me with coupons to redeem product and a gift card so that I could share my thoughts and information about Arnold® products and “2016 America’s Better Sandwich” Contest.
During the summer months I eat more sandwiches than I do all year long. Nothing beats fresh veggies straight from the garden stacked high and wrapped up in two slices of bread on a hot blistering day. Plus, you can basically pile anything between Arnold® Bread and it makes a quick satisfying meal without spending hours in the kitchen. Quick, simple and delicious is my motto throughout the entire year, but especially on those extremely warm summer days!
Every good sandwich starts with Arnold® Bread! It is the number one preferred brand of bread in our home. Let’s face it! You can have the best ingredients in a sandwich, but if the bread doesn’t taste good the whole sandwich is wasted. Arnold® products taste fantastic and contain everything I like in my bread.
All of Arnold® Whole Grains Sliced Breads and Arnold® Sandwich Thins® Rolls contain:
2 to 5 grams of fiber per slice or thin
Zero grams of Trans Fat
No High Fructose Corn Syrup
A cholesterol free food
The Arnold® bread varieties contain/are:
Made with 100% whole grains
Good source of fiber
80 calories per serving
No High Fructose Corn Syrup
Zero grams of Trans Fat
Health authorities recommend munching on 25-38 grams of fiber and 48 grams of whole grains per day, much of which may come from whole grain products like Arnold® Whole Grains Sliced Breads or Arnold® Sandwich Thins® Rolls varieties.
If you’re not sure of how many grams of whole grains you are getting, look for the Whole Grain Stamp found on all of Arnold® Whole Grains Sliced Breads and Arnold® Sandwich Thins® Rolls.

Grilled Salmon Taboule and Cheddar Sandwich
The best part of grilling season is the leftovers! This time of year there is plenty of leftovers in the fridge from your last grilling event to build a quick and tasty sandwich. One of my personal favorite bites to have leftover is fish, because it is so versatile! Fish is wonderful all on its own, but also good served with eggs, on a salad, or between bread.
For instance, wild salmon is very rich in omega 3 fatty acids which have been shown to be good for health. Combine it with a serving of fiber (Arnold® Whole Grain Sliced Bread) sliced cheddar cheese (protein), and crisp romaine (iron) lettuce for a “Fueling Good” delicious easy meal to boost your energy level.
Another item I love to have ready to go in the fridge is Taboule! If you have never tried the Mediterranean salad it is a mix of fresh chopped tomatoes, parsley, bulgur (cracked wheat), onions, sunflower oil, olive oil, lemon juice and spices. It is timely to make, so I normally just purchase Taboule already made. Taboule can turn even the most boring piece of deli meat or sandwich into a scrumptious bite of flavorful heaven!
So, if you have any leftover grilled salmon lurking in your refrigerator give my Grilled Salmon Taboule and Cheddar Sandwich a try for an excellent boost of delicious energy!
- 2 slices of Arnold® Whole Grains Healthy Multi-Grain bread, toasted.
- 1 grilled salmon fillet
- 2 tbsp. Taboule
- 1 tsp. (on top) nonfat mayonnaise
- 1 slice cheddar cheese
- 2 leaves romaine lettuce
- Spread Taboule onto one slice of bread; layer with salmon, cheddar cheese, and romaine lettuce. Spread the mayonnaise on the remaining slice of bread and layer it on top. Cut and serve.
