Austrian-Italian gourmet sandwiches

I was never a big fan of sandwiches (unless I was traveling in France where they know how to make REAL fresh and awesome "sund-weech", as they say), until a close friend of mine gave me a bite of her mouth-watering and appetizing-looking lunch piece, which was absolutely succulent . She has a knack of making gorgeous and delicious sandwiches. She is of Austrian origin and her husband is Italian. When they cook together, their meals are out of this world. A great combo.

Recipe "au pif":
German bread (or organic
Kamut bread)
Strips of left-over chicken or turkey
Spinach leaves
Arugula (Roquette) lettuce
Sliced tomato
Provolone cheese slices
Roasted orange bell pepper slices
Dijon mustard (forte)

This sandwich is so satisfying that it's great for the road. You won't be hungry for a while.
