Great Harvest Bread
Real Food. Real People.

We here at Great Harvest in Newtonville like nothing better than enjoying seasonal foods. Vegetables are ten times better when they’re in season, and there’s nothing like savoring light, fresh meals during spring. Today, we’d love to offer some recipes for delicious spring sandwiches. All of these recipes serve 4, but you can adapt the measurements should you need to.

Smoked salmon salad

8 oz. skinless salmon fillet
6 oz. smoked salmon (chopped)
⅓ cup mayonnaise
⅓ cup celery (chopped)
1 tablespoon chives (chopped)
1 tablespoon capers (chopped)
1 teaspoon lemon zest (grated)
Black pepper to taste

Heat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Roast your salmon fillet until cooked through (6 to 8 minutes). Let it cool and then break it into flakes. Mix all the ingredients aside from the lettuce together in a large bowl. Divide the filling among your sandwiches (this filling works best with a dark bread such as rye) and garnish with lettuce. Delicious!

Roasted red pepper, goat’s cheese and spinach

4 large red bell peppers
2 tablespoons good-quality olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic (minced)
11 oz. goat’s cheese
10 large basil leaves
Baby spinach
½ red onion (thinly sliced)
Salt, pepper and capers to taste

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Roast the peppers for 40 minutes, turning twice, then remove from the oven and wrap the whole tray tightly in aluminium foil and let rest for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set aside. Remove the stems from the peppers, then quarter them and discard the seeds. Pour the oil mixture over the peppers and toss them around to cover them. Assemble the sandwiches by spreading your bread with goat’s cheese, adding some pepper mixture, and garnishing with spinach, basil leaves and onion slices. Ciabatta works well, but feel free to experiment.


2 teaspoons basil pesto
8 slices salami
½ cup roasted peppers (see above recipe)
¼ cup shaved parmesan
Black pepper

Spread your bread generously with pesto, slap on some salami, peppers and rocket, and season with cracked black pepper and parmesan for a delightfully simple and indescribably tasty Italian-influenced springtime treat.

Of course, the easiest way to enjoy a mouthwatering sandwich is to drop by Great Harvest. We also offer sweet treats and the tastiest, healthiest bread in Newtonville. Call 617-928-1162 to find out what we have in store today.
