  • 1 red tomato sliced
  • 1/4 yellow pepper sliced
  • 1 chunk of green cucumber sliced
  • 1 radish sliced
  • 2 lettuce leaves - we used Baby Gem finely chopped
  • 1 carrot grated or peeled with the potato peeler
  • 2 slices of bread
  • cream cheese to hold the sandwich together


  • spread a think layer of cream cheese on both pieces of bread
  • slice up the radish and place slices on the bread
  • place the sliced tomatoes on top of the sliced radish
  • place the yellow pepper rings on top of the tomato
  • place the sliced cucumber on top of the sliced tomato
  • place the carrot slivers or ribbons on top of the sliced cucumber
  • top with the chopped or shredded lettuce
  • carefully place the bread on top
  • assemble on a plate and carefully slice into 4 pieces - this can be on the diagonal to create triangles or straight into fours to create four squares.
  • and eat!
  • This could equally be made with mayonnaise and perhaps a slice of ham or chicken and if you are worried about the rainbow sandwich falling apart you could use cocktail sticks to hold this together! We wrapped this in a serviette to add extra colour and carefully ate!
  • Enjoy!
