Wednesday: Vegetable Panini with Feta

1 (16 ounce) loaf French bread (about 20 inches long)
1 (10 ounce) pkg. romaine salad mix
1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 medium-size ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1/2 medium purple onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled Feta cheese
1/3 cup fat-free Caesar dressing
2 Tbs. lemon juice

Cut a 1/2-inch thick slice from top of the bread, and set top aside.

Hollow out bread, leaving a 1-inch shell; reserve soft bread from another use. Set bread shell aside.

Combine salad mix and next 4 ingredients. Combine dressing and lemon juice; drizzle over lettuce mixture. Toss.

Fill bread shell with lettuce mixture; replace top. Slice and Serve.

My husband and I both were very surprisingly pleased with this sandwich. My son ate just the bread and kind of nibbled on some lettuce. :)
