Coriander dressing: 1 bunch of coriander leaves

½ medium sized lemon
½ cup of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste.

Finely chop coriander leaves.
Roast garlic and chillies in a pan till they start turning light brown.
Now crush garlic and chillies in a mortar and pestle to make a coarse paste. In a small jar, put the chopped coriander leaves, garlic and chilli paste. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper to it. Now add about ½ a cup of olive oil to it. Close the jar and give a nice shake to it so that all the flavors get mixed.
Your coriander dressing is ready.
Cut Cucumber,Green pepper into thin slices
Bring Brocolli florets to boil. Rinse it in cold water. Put it on the kitchen towel to drain any water.
Assemble all the ingredients including lettuce, cucumber, green pepper, and broccoli florets on the bread. Put a cheese slice and top it with the coriander dressing.
Your Go-Green Sandwich is ready to go..!!
Note: If you like your cheese to be melted, just toast the bread with the cheese in the oven for a minute.
The sandwich dressing can be stored in an airtight container in a refrigerator for about a week .
