I warned you guys this was coming over the weekend. And today it’s finally ready to share. Oh, how I love this sandwich. It’s simple…ish, but SO GOOD.

Something about lightly charred grilled vegetables sandwiched together with creamy burrata and herbs is just beyond delicious. Totally my kind of summer backyard BBQ food.

For the last month, I’ve really been into sandwiches, which is so odd because I despise photographing sandwiches. I’ve always found photographing them to be tricky. So over the years, I’ve really tried to avoid them. But with summer around the corner, easy sandwiches are what’s on my mind. And apparently, they’re what’s on your mind, as so many of you have been requesting them.

I love a good Italian pressed sandwich, but I wanted to create a vegetarian option for Memorial Day this weekend. As well as for all of our upcoming summer cookouts. Something that’s easy to throw together, but still soo good.

Enter this pretty vegetable and cheese-filled pressed sandwich.

The details – they start with that honey mustard

Hands down this is one of my favorite dressings. It’s creamy, sweet, tangy, and herby with thyme and lemon. It’s also got a slight kick from some cayenne. The mustard makes things light and creamy, while the honey keeps things sweet…a nice balance to the spicy.

You’ll want to make this first…it’s what you’ll toss the vegetables in before grilling. If you love a lot of dressing, double the recipe because this dressing is that good. You’ll appreciate having the extra for your sandwich.

Now the vegetables and bread

I use a mix of red peppers, zucchini, and yellow summer squash. I like to toss them with a bit of the dressing, then grill them until they’re lightly charred. If you don’t have a grill, you can easily roast these up in the oven too.

For the base of the sandwich, I love to use a loaf of airy ciabatta bread. I rub the cut sides with olive oil, and then lightly grill them until the outside becomes crusty. Grilling the bread gives it a nice toasting and adds another layer of delicious flavor.

Put it all together

Once the bread and vegetables are grilled, all that’s left to do is assemble. I layered the warm, toasted bread with grilled vegetables, burrata, provolone, spinach, herbs, and a drizzle of dressing.

Then I added the top piece of bread and gave the sandwich a firm push down to seal everything inside. And done.

I love this sandwich to pieces. Again, it’s so my kind of sandwich. Vegetables and cheese please…and with a darn good dressing too!

Ingredients

Dressing

Sandwich

  • 2 zucchini or yellow squash, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 bell peppers, quartered
  • 1 loaf ciabatta bread, halved lengthwise
  • 4 slices sharp provolone cheese
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil or mixed herbs

Instructions

  • 1. To make the dressing. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and whisk until smooth. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper.
    2. In a large bowl, toss the zucchini and peppers with 1/2 of the dressing. Let sit 10 minutes.
    3. Preheat the grill or grill pan to high. 
    4. Rub each half of the bread with olive oil. Grill the bread, cut side down, for 3-5 minutes or until light grill marks appear. At the same time, grill the peppers and zucchini until softened, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove everything from the grill. 
    5. Working with the bottom piece of bread, drizzle with a couple spoonfuls of the dressing, then layer on the vegetables, burrata, and provolone. Add the spinach and herbs. Drizzle the remaining dressing over everything. Add the top half of the ciabatta and gently push down on the sandwich. At this point, you can slice the sandwich and serve warm or wrap the sandwich tightly and place in the fridge for 1 hour or up to 1 day. Before serving, cut into 4-6 sandwiches.

    Absolutely LOVED this recipe!!! Added grilled chicken to it for my non-vegetarians and it tasted great! The dressing is amazing as well. This is definitely going into our dinner rotation!

    SO Good! I’ve made this twice- do yourself a favor and double the amount of dressing you make so you can drizzle it on toast, eggs, salad, pizza, or drink it straight from the jar. If you’re watching your cheese intake, you can reduce the bursts and skip the provolone and it’s STILL delicious! Thanks T!

    1. Hey Kim,
      I am thrilled that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for making it! Happy 4th of July!🇺🇸 xTieghan

  4. I don’t think I’ve ever made a recipe here that I didn’t like! This was no exception. Wow! Such great flavor. We found the sandwich getting too tall (we used large peppers) so we never even got to adding the spinach. I had a pub style mustard that was made with apple cider vinegar so I made a few tweaks to the dressing. Everyone was pleasantly impressed. 🙂 Thanks!

    1. Hey Lauren,

  5. I don’t have a grill. What temp and time do you recommend to roast the vegetables? And the bread?

    1. Hey Neha,
      I would roast at 350 for 20-30 minutes. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    Hey hey Tieghan! This is was hit! I didn’t have ciabatta but did have some garlic naan and it was delightful. (Also had to sub a sharp white cheddar for the provolone and that worked well, too.) I could seriously eat the dressing with a spoon (maybe a ladle, honestly). Keep ’em coming…love your stuff. XO -Em

    Two nights of HBH on the bounce and two of the best meals I’ve ever made! This was heaven! This will be a regular staple for us now.

    WOW just WOW, so good. I used asparagus and red onion and zucchini as I can not eat peppers. I did add thinly sliced chicken breast. I used the dressing to marinate the chicken as well. This sandwich is a complete meal, no side dish required. This is a very hearty and filling sandwich.

    First, this sandwich was amazing. However, my husband thinks that if it doesn’t have meat, then its not really a meal. He LOVED this sandwich. This is shocking. He also has a dairy allergy so no burrata for him, but that didn’t take away.

    This is my first recipe from Half Baked Harvest. The dressing is amazing, and combined with the veggies and especially the Burrata, this could rival any fancy sandwich I could get it restaurant. I don’t have a grill pan and didn’t have access to a grill so I just cooked the vegetables on a flat stove top griddle. For the fresh herbs, I used basil and parsley. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to try more recipes!

    Love this! I’ve made it twice this week for dinner already. And you’re right about the dressing. It’s 100% sooo good. The veggies taste amazing with the dressing on them. And the burrata is a bonus. Yum. This is making it into my rotation of summer meals for sure.

    I love mozzarella and burrata is just heavenly. When I saw this, I had to try it and was seriously thinking about it constantly until I made it over Memorial Day weekend. It was AMAZING! This is one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. My husband couldn’t believe how a vegetable sandwich can taste so good.

    This sandwich was perfect! I packed this for a picnic on the Moselle River with my hubby. We enjoyed every last bite, I will save this dressing recipe for my next antipasto salad! I couldn’t stop “taste testing” it while the veggies grilled. I will be making this for my sister-in-law when we next visit. She is the only vegetarian in the family, so I try to find dishes for her especially.

    I bookmarked this to make as soon as you published it last week and finally got to make it today! I left the thyme out of the dressing because I forgot to buy some, still tasted great with just basil. I also made this inside using a cast iron pan and a grill press to “grill” the veggies, it worked wonderfully. This was soooo delicious, a very messy sandwich but one you can’t put down!

        We loved it! I had everything in stock ingredient wise and it turned out amazing. You almost don’t need a side as they are so hearty! Have another one wrapped in parchment paper for my lunch tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it already! Thanks for the amazing recipe idea!

    My daughter has sent me several of your recipes so I thought I would start creating my own recipe box..
    I just made this after church today for lunch and it was excellent and easy to make. It is messy, but who cares! My husband said it looked just like your picture. I couldn’t find the sharp provolone so went with another white cheese.
    Thank you,

    This was amazing! I added grilled chicken for the men in my life, but it didn’t need it. The sauce was phenomenal, and I’m definitely using it for salad dressing! Another great one for summer… winter, fall, spring. 🙂

    These sandwiches are the best! I am a vegetarian and I am always looking for new recipes. These hit the spot! The dressing was sooooo good. I did grill some onions with my vegetables and I used mozzarella, instead of burrata, because I didn’t have burrata. I will definitely make these again and again. My husband loved them also.

    Very delicious. Grilled the veggies and made the dressing the night before. Assembled in the morning and wrapped and refrigerated until lunch. Really enjoyed it. Leftover dressing was a plus! I used it on a salad for dinner. Thanks for another great recipe.

      Fantastic! I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe, thanks so much for making it! Happy Friday:) xTieghan

  24. I hightly recommend this recipe to everyone! I have a bad habit of modifying recipes, but did not do so with this one. I will use this dressing recipe for many other foods and will be adding burrata everywhere! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
