There are so many different types of combinations that can be made with both dishes.  Believe me I like to try them all out too.

After college I discovered the restaurant Panera Bread.  (They did not have one in Lubbock, Texas.)  Soups, salads, paninis, sandwiches, fresh bread and sweets made daily.  They place their desserts and bread on a tower and table just so you can marvel at all the treats.  They get you just close enough to look and smell but then cut you off with a see-through window.

Very tricky….

When I go to the restaurant I usually choose the pick two items.  It’s a tough decision but typically I stick with a sandwich and soup.  My past couple of visits I’ve been getting their mediterranean veggie sandwich.  Now, I am the first to admit that I love meat.  But holy cow this sandwich is GOOD.  It’s loaded with vegetables and is full of flavor.  So after many trips to Panera Bread I am replicating my version of their Mediterranean Veggie.  This makes one sandwich because I eat by myself when I come home for lunch.  Please double or triple the amounts of ingredients depending on how many sandwiches you will be making.
