4 Easy Spring Sandwich Recipes That'll Change Your Lunch Forever!

Good morning, lovely friends! A post I wrote for Refinery29 just went live—all about spring sandwiches!—and I'd love to share the link with you, if you're interested. They challenged me to come up with 4 easy-but-elegant sandwich recipes to quickly improve one's lunch hour (including a diet-friendly classic). With boyfriend as my testee, I developed my ultimate spring sandwich lineup: a skinnier Croque Madame, Wedge Salad Sub, Pickled Veggie Focaccia Sandwich and a Chocolate-Olive Oil Baguette 
The chocolate-olive oil baguette is actually a secret dinner party–trick of mine: When I run out of time to bake dessert, this super-simple combo of baguette, chocolate, olive oil and sea salt is how I like to end a meal. It's such a no brainer! Easy as making toast. Here's how you make it...CHOCOLATE–OLIVE OIL BAGUETTE WITH SEA SALT
SERVES: 4
1 baguette, cut into 4 pieces
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
Maldon sea salt, for sprinkling

1. Preheat the oven to 400˚. Slice the baguette pieces in half; brush the insides with olive oil and arrange, cut-side up, on a foil-lined baking sheet. Toast until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring, until melted.
3. Spread melted chocolate on the bottom halves of the baguette. Drizzle each with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Sprinkle with Maldon sea salt.

Head over to Refinery29 for the other recipes! They couldn't be simpler to make and the payoff is fabulous—hope you enjoy 'em!
