TORONTO, April 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Fresh, in-season spring produce is returning to your local market and with it comes a variety of ways to give your sandwiches a bright makeover, with colorful fruits and vegetables. Preparing sandwiches with locally grown produce is a simple and convenient way to get your required daily nutrients. For example, fruits, vegetables and bread have naturally occurring vitamins and minerals such as fibre, a vital part of healthy eating.

Breathe some life into your lunches with these refreshed sandwich favourites that are sure to please any palate. On behalf of Dempster's, Chef Bob Villeneuve has developed three delicious options to help freshen-up your spring and summer lunches:

Century Grain Asparagus Benedict
It is a sure sign that spring is here when the first bunch of Canadian asparagus appears at the local market! This sandwich, a tasty twist on a Canadian favourite, uses fresh, locally grown produce and has everything you want to help keep you energized. Additionally, one slice of bread contains as much fibre as one cup of asparagus, which helps keep you full longer and is good for maintaining a healthy weight.

Spinach and Leek Chicken Salad Sandwich
Leeks, which are plentiful from spring to fall, only need some gentle grilling to bring out their sweet flavours. Paired with spinach, Feta cheese, nutmeg and chicken this sandwich is a great source of many essential nutrients. In fact, the two slices of bread provide the same amount of iron as the spinach!

Strawberry and Goat Cheese Sandwich
Nothing tastes more like summer than Canadian strawberries. This nutritious sandwich, inspired by Canadian-grown fresh, seasonal produce, captures all of summer's delicious flavours. Baked with these whole some ingredients, this sandwich is healthy, unique and delicious.
