I thought that this seemed to be a simple, but above average sandwich and it was all that and more! As said before, the combination of proscuitto and avocado was outstanding. We made ours in to 2 slice sandwiches and I had mine with raw onions instead of the cooked ones. It fit both our our tastes perfectly!
