Sometimes you just need a good sammie to hit the spot on a summer day. These 7 summer sandwiches are tasty good additions to your warm weather meal planning.

A sandwich can be your best friend—or worst enemy—when you want a satisfying meal. When it’s made with refined bread or drowning in sauces, that sandwich can flood your body with plenty of empty calories—calories that show up on your upper arms, waist, and thighs.

But, when prepared with whole, nutritious ingredients, a sandwich is a fantastic way to load up on fiber, antioxidants, and protein. The summer sandwiches we’re sharing do just that. They’ll satisfy your craving for a good sandwich while nourishing your body with good-for-you ingredients you can feel great about eating.

1. Chicken and Crisp Veggie Sandwich

This sandwich, which includes radishes and cucumbers, is simple to prep, making it a no-brainer choice for busy summer weeknights.

2. Chicken Pesto Pita

Pesto is a refreshing summer sandwich topping on this pita, which also includes yummy roasted red peppers and baby spinach.

3. No-Mayo Chicken Salad

The recipe calls for this healthy chicken salad to be served in cabbage leaves, but you can also spoon this salad into a whole grain pita or onto whole grain bread and use the leaves for a topping.

4. Jalapeno Lima Tuna Salad

We love to put healthy tuna salad into summer sandwiches. Instead of using spinach leaves for serving as the recipe calls for, serve this zippy tuna salad on whole grain bread and turn the spinach leaves into a topping.

The taste of the breezy Mediterranean is one sandwich recipe away with this delish pita idea.
