1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
1/8 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves
8 slices Savory Summertime Oat Bread or whole-grain bread
8 leaves green leaf lettuce
1 large tomato, thinly sliced
1 small cucumber, thinly sliced
4 slices (1 ounce each) reduced-fat Cheddar cheese

  1. To prepare mayonnaise spread, combine mayonnaise, garlic, marjoram and tarragon in small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
