Avocado Delight

This is one of those sandwiches you just can't put down. Yes it is that good, but the real reason is that it will fall apart. This can be a very messy sandwich. You have been warned. You really should pick up a half and not let go until it is gone. 

I can't take credit for this sandwich combination. It is from the menu of Counter Culture Yogurt. While I can't make their yogurt at home, I can make this delicious sandwich. I use light and reduced fat ingredients to try to lower the calories a bit. I promise there is so much flavor in the fresh ingredients you will not miss the full fat ones. I love the avocado, mayo and cheddar combination. Pick a perfectly ripe avocado and you can't go wrong. Don't worry if you cannot find sprouts. It is great without them, but if you find them they do add great texture. Lastly, go to a Counter Culture if you can. Their yogurt is wonderful and I love the "David's Drink" there.

Avocado Delight
Serves 2


4 slices of soft light wheat bread
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1/2 cup reduced fat, sharp cheddar cheese
2 lettuce leaves, ribs removed
2-4 tomato slices
Alfalfa sprouts (optional)
1 medium/large avocado, diced
Jane’s Krazy Mixed-Up Salt to taste


Spread mayo on one side of each piece of bread. Top two slices of bread with cheese. Layer with lettuce, tomato and sprouts, sprinkle with Jane’s. Top with avocado, also seasoned with a sprinkling of Jane’s. Assemble sandwich and cut in half.
