If you like hot foods, add minced jalapeño peppers to the avocado mixture.
1/2 cup coarsely mashed avocado
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
8 (1-ounce) slices whole grain bread
4 plum tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
2/3 cup alfalfa sprouts
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
8 ounces thinly sliced deli turkey
How to Make It
Combine avocado and lime juice. Spread 2 tablespoons avocado mixture on each of 4 bread slices. Arrange the tomato slices over avocado mixture; sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Divide sprouts, onion, cilantro, and turkey evenly over tomato slices. Top with remaining bread slices.
A simple, delicious (and very pretty) sandwich. Guacamole goes surprisingly well with deli turkey! My only complaint is the reported nutritional info, specifically the calorie count. I don't see how any sandwich can possible be only 205 calories - two slices of bread alone can top that easily, and then you throw on some meat and avocado? I realize the recipe calls for "1-oz" slices of bread, but even then this is a stretch (and who has 1-oz slices of bread, anyway? These must exist in the same alternate universe as the 2-oz chicken thighs and 4-oz chicken breasts so prevalent in CL recipes!). But gripes aside, the sandwich is fantastic and, served with some tasty chips, makes for a perfect weeknight meal.
