Roast Beef Sandwiches

     This is a great, healthy variation of a classic sandwich!  Lean beef is a good source of protein and iron, as well as vitamins B12 and B6, both of which play a critical role in cell metabolism and preventing osteoporosis.
     If your idea of a splurge is prime rib, you'll love this lean roast beef sandwich with a tangy, creamy horseradish spread.  Stacked with peppery arugula and sweet, juicy tomatoes, it's a sumptuous sandwich to sink your teeth into.

Roast Beef Sandwiches

1/2 C nonfat plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp. prepared horseradish
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
8 slices whole grain bread (use ANY whole grain bread you like---sub rolls, focacia, or even a wrap.)
8 oz. all-natural, low sodium deli-fresh roast beef, thinly sliced
2 C baby arugula
1 beefsteak tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 C thinly sliced red onion

In a small bowl, whisk yogurt, horseradish, lemon juice and pepper until combined.  Spread mixture onto 1 side of each bread slice, dividing evenly.  Layer beef, arugula, tomato and onion between bread slices, dividing evenly.
