In this veg cream cheese sandwich, I have added spring onions, carrot and capsicum. You can add other veggies like grated beetroot, chopped cabbage, cucumber, tomato, boiled corn etc.
Few things to keep in mind, if adding watery veggies like cucumber, tomatoes then the sandwiches should be consumed right away. So if making for picnic, party or lunch box avoid such veggies.
If adding boiled corn kernels then make sure that they are at room temperature or cold. Do not add hot or warm corn otherwise cream cheese may get runny. We want spreading consistency.
Here I have used Amul Garlic cheese spread. You can use any other flavor like oregano pickle, jeera, pepper etc. There are many other brands available in market, you can use any.
