You know what I haven't shared for a while? A new meatless main dish.  I have still been doing a meatless dish for dinner one night a week.  My husband and kids have come to look forward to these nights.  I have several recipes that are always popular that I can go to, but I'm always searching for new ones to try out as well.  Summertime brings a great range of new possibilities with grilling.  Using the grill for meatless dishes is a really great idea because the grill often invokes a "meaty" flavor to veggies or whatever you are grilling.  It kind of tricks your brain into thinking that you are eating meat when you are not.  I got the idea for these sandwiches from Better Recipes.  Grilled zucchini, squash, and mushrooms piled on a sandwich roll with creamy hummus.  I put my own twist on it by marinating the veggies in Greek dressing and topping the sandwiches with tangy feta cheese.  Not a chance of missing the meat with these awesome sandwiches!

Greek Grilled Veggie and Hummus Sandwiches

2 medium or large zucchini
2 medium or large yellow squash
8 oz. cremini mushrooms, sliced
Greek vinaigrette salad dressing
Greek seasoning
6 Sandwich rolls
Prepared hummus
Crumbled feta cheese
Sliced Kalamata olives

Cut zucchini and yellow squash into thin planks.  Place them and the mushrooms into a large resealable bag.  Pour Greek dressing in the bag, just enough to cover the veggies.  Seal bag and marinate veggies in fridge for at least a couple of hours.

Preheat grill to medium-high.  Remove veggies from bag and sprinkle with Greek seasoning.  Grill on one side until grill marks form.  Flip over and grill the other side until veggies are tender.  Use a grill basket for the mushrooms.

Toast sandwich rolls if desired.  Spread each sandwich roll with a smear of hummus, pile on the grilled veggies, and top with feta cheese and sliced olives.

Makes about 6 sandwiches.

 This is what I mean by "planks".  I used Ken's Greek Dressing, but any Greek dressing would be great.  Of course, I used Penzey's for the Greek seasoning.

 You can use any veggies you like, of course.  Red pepper would be a great choice if you like that.

This is one heck of a sandwich!
