In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Like everyone at Serious Eats, I dig Taïm's falafel. But it's their salads that I really love: bright orange carrots with cumin, earthy crimson beets, sultry eggplant mush—these are things I would like to eat more of, all the time please. Enter the Hummus Sandwich ($6), the same great pita and the same awesome hummus, but with your choice of two salads to go inside instead of falafel. It's a lighter, brighter, vegetabley-er lunch for when fried chickpeas feels like too much. Pictured above is egglant with paprika and slow cooked tomato, which adds just enough depth to beets with lemon and garlic. If you're looking to build more vegetables into your diet, this is how.
