Jalapeno Rainbow Veggie Sandwich

Been spending a lot of time poolside at my parent's house since school got out.   We pack the cooler with sandwiches and snacks and just hang out.    After a month of lunch meat, I went searching for something different that was still simple to make and easy to transport.  

Right now there are always prepped veggies in my fridge for salad or snacking, so this came together very quickly.  Since I'm the only jalapeno lover, I made up the total amount of cream cheese spread and put the rest of it in a specially marked container.   I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese, and because I never have green onions when I need them, Penzey's dried chives.      I think very thin slices of purple onion would be awesome on this too, or even zucchini and summer squash.   

Thank you to Cheri at Kitchen Simplicity for getting me out of my "same old, same old" sandwich rut!
