Turkish Sandwich with Grilled Zucchini and SalamiThese Turkish sandwiches are a complete meal in itself. It includes delicious cheese, grilled zucchini layer, and flavor-packed salami slices. I've also included crushed and slightly stir-fried green olives to give it a tangy flavor. Rocket lettuce ensures a sharp flavor and texture complements the flavors of salami and grilled zucchini. To get the best results, use classic Turkish bread for these sandwiches. If you do not mind bit creamy ingredients, including a layer of peanut butter too. I generally serve it with flavored buttermilk, though a spicy dip also goes well with it. Instead of salami, you can also use shredded shrimps. Let's make this tasty and fulfilling sandwich recipe for our family members.
