There are few meals that are as simply as classic as a hearty sandwich. However, as many dieters will tell you, it can be hard to make a filling, satisfying, and tasty meal while on a diet, especially out of something as light as a sandwich.

Fortunately, there’s a plethora of Weight Watchers sandwich recipes that fulfill these categories while costing very few points. Below is a list of 15 Weight Watchers sandwich recipes that all cost 7 points or less.

1. Chicken Cobb Salad Sandwich

7 Points | Total Time: 10 min | Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 1

This recipe takes the classic Cobb Salad and places it between two slices of bread. The result is a satisfying meal for 1, complete with plenty of protein and veggies. The recipe is super straightforward too: just take the ingredients and stack them in the sandwich.

Be sure to get reduced-calorie wheat bread for this recipe. The protein parts of this may require a little extra prep time to cook the chicken and bacon and to boil the egg.

2. Heirloom Tomato Sandwiches with Basil Mayo

7 Points | Total Time: 5 min | Prep Time: 5 min | Serves: 4

Not only is this one of the fastest and easiest sandwich recipes to make but it’s also a perfect way to give you a healthy serving of vegetables. If you’re a tomato lover, this sandwich is practically perfect. It’s exactly what the name implies: slices of heirloom tomatoes with light mayonnaise and basil stacked between slices of bread.

For extra flavor and juiciness, take advantage of heirloom tomatoes at their peak ripeness. This recipe also makes for a refreshing meal during summertime. Be sure to serve these immediately as they will not keep overnight.

3. Curried Egg and Apple Salad Sandwich

4 Points | Total Time: 10 min | Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 1

For a sandwich recipe that’s a little out of the ordinary, this unique flavor combo is the way to go. The spice of the curry pairs well with the rye bread and hard boiled eggs while the apple gives it just the right tinge of sweetness.

The best part about this recipe is how customizable it is. If you want to make it spicier, you can swap out the curry powder for something of your choosing. You can also make it milder by using regular curry powder instead of Madras variety powder.

4. Roast Beef Sandwiches with Horseradish Mayo

6 Points | Total Time: 10 min | Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 2

This recipe takes the classic roast beef sandwich and gives it a little bit of acidity and bite. The arugula has an earthy and peppery flavor while the horseradish provides just the right amount of heat. It’s also perfect for sharing with someone else.

If you’re not a fan of arugula, you can swap it out for spinach, romaine lettuce, or iceberg lettuce. This recipe also pairs exceptionally well with pickles, so if that’s your thing, be sure to include a couple of those on the side as well.

5. Lemon-Pepper Tuna Sandwiches

6 Points | Total Time: 10 min | Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 2

Once again, the peppery flavor of arugula rises to the occasion, this time with tuna salad as its partner. This sandwich is equal parts protein packed and veggie filled, making for a filling lunch or a quick and easy dinner option for nights when you don’t feel like cooking.

Be sure to get canned tuna packed in water as it’s a great source of protein that doesn’t break the bank. If you can’t get that, feel free to replace it with chopped cooked chicken or rotisserie chicken. 

6. Smoked Turkey Sandwiches with Chipotle Mayo

5 Points | Total Time: 10 min | Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 2

Perfect for a light lunch or a summer picnic, this sandwich embodies the image of a classic sandwich. The chipotle mayo is easy to make: simply combine chipotle chiles en adobo sauce and mayonnaise. 

Customize the spiciness of this mayo by adding your own ingredients to the mixture. To decrease spiciness, just replace the chile sauce with smoky barbecue sauce. The ingredient list includes rye bread but you can replace it with whole wheat bread if you prefer.

7. Black Bean and Avocado Sandwiches

4 Points | Total Time: 15 min | Prep Time: 15 min | Serves: 4

On top of being healthy and filling, this sandwich’s components are vegan, with the exception of the bread. If you desire, you can use your preferred vegan bread to make this recipe fully vegan. The best part is that the black bean spread for the sandwich can also be used as a dip for snacks or as a substitute for refried beans in other meals.

When pureeing the mixture, feel free to add a little cayenne or a couple dashes of hot sauce to give it just the right kick. If you’re not a fan of spiciness, then just follow the recipe as is.

8. Salmon, Cucumber, and Mint Sandwiches

4 Points | Total Time: 20 min | Prep Time: 20 min | Serves: 4

The refreshing yet sharp flavor of mint and cucumber makes this sandwich a perfect afternoon pick-me-up. Combined with kalamata olives and salmon, this recipe conjures up images of a cool summer breeze with each bite. Best part is the salmon is canned, meaning no cooking or preparation is required.

Be sure to dig out the baguette before assembling the sandwich to help prevent all of the filling from falling out. When making the sandwich, pick out any large pieces of skin or bone that might be present in the canned salmon.

9. Open-Faced Egg Salad Sandwiches

2 Points | Total Time: 15 min | Prep Time: 15 min | Serves: 6

An open-faced sandwich can instantly transform a meal from ordinary to extraordinary. The creaminess of avocado and the tang of Greek yogurt make for a unique and delicious egg salad that can be eaten either in sandwich form or just by itself.

Use reduced-calorie whole wheat bread and be sure to toast it. Be sure to note that the recipe calls for the baby variety of arugula in this particular instance. Choose whatever Greek yogurt you prefer as long as it is plain and low fat.

10. Italian Tuna and Artichoke Tramezzini

4 Points | Total Time: 10 min | Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 2

Inspired by the flavors of Italy, this style of sandwich is crustless and filled with bright and zesty flavors. Artichoke is a unique sandwich addition, whose flavor is enhanced by the presence of capers and fresh lemon zest. If you’re looking for a sandwich recipe off the beaten path, this is a great option.

It’s no secret that Weight Watchers sandwich recipes love hard boiled eggs and this recipe is no exception. Although it is entirely optional, feel free to layer a few slices of hard boiled eggs on top of the tuna mixture for extra protein.

11. Avocado Lobster Roll

4 Points | Total Time: 25 min | Prep Time: 25 min | Serves: 4

Even something as delectable as the lobster roll can be made into a healthy alternative. This recipe brings avocado and Greek yogurt into the fray once again, pureed together into a creamy yet tangy mixture that pairs perfectly with lobster and toasted rolls.

Although the recipe calls for chopped chives and radishes as a garnish, you’re welcome to skip these if you’re not a fan of the flavor. You can also swap out lobster meat for shrimp if you don’t have lobster available.

12. Thai Lobster Rolls

6 Points | Total Time: 15 min | Prep Time: 15 min | Serves: 4

Weight Watchers has yet another take on the lobster roll, this time featuring Thai-inspired slaw made of shredded cabbage and carrots. This recipe puts a fabulous spin on an already tasty meal, complete with a hint of spice  from the sriracha and the tang of fresh lime juice.

If you’re unsure how to cook lobster meat, you can use precooked meat for this recipe. If there’s a supermarket or fish market near you, you can always ask them to steam a whole lobster for you as well.

13. Shrimp Salad Sandwich with Cucumber and Dill

3 Points | Total Time: 10 min | Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 1

If lobster isn’t your style, Weight Watchers has other seafood sandwiches that can suit your fancy. This shrimp salad is made with cooked frozen shrimp, meaning that no cooking is required to make this meal. The cucumber and dill pair perfectly together, adding a touch of delicacy to this recipe.

To avoid getting the bread soggy, keep the bread and shrimp salad separate until you’re ready to eat the sandwich. Chopped lobster also works in this recipe if you want to make it even fancier.

14. Shrimp and Corn Salad Rolls

7 Points | Total TIme: 10 min | Prep Time: 10 min | Serves: 4

This take on a New England classic once again replaces lobster with shrimp. Greek yogurt is combined with light mayo to give it that signature creaminess while still being as fat-free as possible. Since this recipe serves 4, it can be a great option for a family dinner or picnic.

This recipe utilizes another Weight Watchers recipe in it: Easy Cajun Shrimp Boil. It can be found on the Weight Watchers app or on their website. 

15. Pan Bagnat

6 Points | Total Time: 23 min | Prep Time: 18 min | Serves: 4

Wrapping up this list is a truly unique sandwich, complete with its own dressing that is drizzled over the bottom slice of bread and on top of all the fillings before serving. The dressing itself is homemade and included in the recipe itself.

As mentioned in the other baguette recipe on this list, be sure to hollow out the baguette before assembling the sandwich to prevent all the fillings from toppling out while you’re eating it.
