    Depends some on her taste buds. Does she like sweet, spicy, tart, tangy, hot? One of the best I have eaten was simply on a whole-grain-nut bread with a wonderfully sweet tomato and thick slices of just-ripe avocado.

    Some of these will be wetter, so pat them dry and maybe assemble the sandwich there.

    Neutral fresh:

    Avocado

    Cucumbers, you can deseed them. I don't.

    Bean sprouts, a little earthy

    Alpha sprouts

    Fresh spinach

    Romaine lettuce

    Sweet:

    Red bell peppers, orange & yellow add variety

    Sweet carrots, shredded or Julienne to go with longer sprouts

    A good tomato

    Sweet relish or pickles, bread & butter chips

    Roasted red peppers are oily but some like them on sandwiches

    Tang:

    Dill pickles/relish

    Sauerkraut...on the side, patted dry

    Coleslaw is both a side and good to add on a sandwich when about to eat it.

    Mustard, Dijon is milder, Brown mustards tend to be more organic and hotter

    Husain sauce, an Asian BBQ sauce

    Tart: tomatillos (like a green tomato)

    Milder heat:

    Sweet white onion

    Green bell pepper

    Anaheim/Verde pepper

    Creole/Hungarian/Bird Cherry pepper

    Heat:

    Pepperoncini

    Fresh, thin sliced jalapeno

    Hot sauce, Red Hot

    Horseradish, could be in a white sauce, or Chinese mustard

    Good sides:

    Broccoli & cauliflower salad

    Waldorf salad

    Coleslaw

    A sweet corn medley

    Fruit medley: pineapple, blueberries, strawberries

    You didn't say vegan, so cheeses to cover a range:

    Swiss

    Havarti

    Provolone

    Gouda

    White sharp cheddar

    Here is a pasta sauce all your guests may enjoy...

    Red sauce: dice 7 medium tomatoes (remove seeds for less bitter) & 1 med sweet white onion, mince 1-4 raw garlic cloves, bruise and finely chop 1/2 cup fresh herbs (basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme). More sweet, dice a red bell pepper. More zip, zest and juice 1/2 lemon--becomes alkaline 20 minutes after eating. More spice: fresh ground black pepper, mince a jalapeno. More calories: 1/2 an avocado, or 1/4 cup powdered-blended raw almonds. Optional 1/2 tsp seasalt. Zucchini and summer squash can be julienned for the noodles.

    Sounds fun. Bon appetite.

    Turkey, Honey Mustard and put it on a Hawaiin Roll. Easy to make but not sure what she likes.

    So Really, I would ask her.
