Russian Sandwich - No Cook for Earth Day

I had seen this recipe years ago on TV. I had made it a couple of times then and remember that I had liked it. Originally I had made it with thick curd and Amul cheese, today I am using mayo and cheddar to bind. You can use as many vegetables you like and in any proportion. You can also add some ketchup or chutney in the mix. It will just make a red or green hued sandwich. So here it is... Russian sandwiches as I remember...

Ingredients: 

6 slices bread - any kind you like
1 1/2 cups vegetable mix - I used finely diced onions, tomato, red and green peppers and grated carrots
2 tablespoons cheddar cheese - you can use any you like
1 1/2 tablespoon mayo or miracle whip or thick yogurt
Butter (optional)
Salt and pepper
Mix the vegetables with the mayo, cheese, salt and pepper. Lightly butter one side of the bread. Layer about 1/3rd of the mixture and close the sandwich with another slice of buttered bread. Make the other two sandwiches the same way. Serve with a side of chips or fries. Enjoy with tea or coffee.

I am sending this to Bhagyashri's Cooking for Kids - Filling Breakfasts, an event started by Sharmi of Neivedyam. And to Indrani's Spotlight: Summer Foods & Drinks.
