Try this easy and healthy Avocado sandwiches

I only know to make simple dishes like boiling eggs. Recently I've tried to make sandwiches by myself which is very easy, healthy and unexpectedly delicious.

Ingredients and steps

Wheat bread: Don't use white bread
A tomato is enough
Lettuce salad and salad cream. Some salad cream in the supermarket would state that they are "half" fats, or 50% fats reduced. Use that, don't worry it
will still taste so good (and healthier)

A Avocado

Steps
1. Cut the avocado into slices
2. Mix the slices of avocado with lettuce salad and salad cream
3. Cut the tomato into slices
4. Put them onto the wheat bread


Super easy! Super delicious. I didn't realize that it could be much more delicious than those I eat at the sandwiches shop. I made three at once and ate them all for dinner!

Sandwiches. One of nature's perfect foods. I'd be all over this sandwich, and especially if a few rings from an onion slice were added.

Plain salad dressing.

Looks good, Kenny. Very fresh and creamy tasting, I'll bet.

Although I'm with Whisk; add a slice of sweet onion.

Good job Kenny!! You're off and running with sandwiches only limited by your imagination!
I love BLAT sandwiches..Bacon(crisp fried)/Lettuce/Avocado/Tomato.

A friend of mine from El Salvador introduced me to an avocado sandwich years ago.

His version:

Hero roll ( or kaiser roll)
Avocado
onion
Hard boiled egg ( crumbled up)
onions
salt and pepper

Im not a big egg fan, so i leave it off, but i can see how it works.
So simple, but so good.

In that 10 second time frame when avocados go from perfectly sliceable to soft , I love to mash them, mix with a little chopped onion, and spread it on toast.

No meat is needed.

I've tried adding onion ring to it. It tastes good

However, avocado is critical

With avocado, you can go without any meat and still full

No salt or pepper is actually needed.


In addition, opening avocado and cutting it into pieces is art!!

I promise you - you don't need to know. It's a cheap version of mayonnaise and doesn't taste anything like it. Probably OK if you are allergic to eggs (but read the label). Heinz make it.

I use to like it on chips/fries but even that has paled

That saves me asking. I've always wondered what Miracle Whip was like.

It has eggs in it.

I love Miracle Whip but generally not by itself as a spread.

Me too, just without avocados in it.

Just kidding.

The salad creams I've tried weren't as sweet as miracle whip, more vinegary.

Now, if I can just say whip without pronouncing the hwa sound, a la Stewie.

Very true. I read that you don't want to use mayonnaise with avocado sandwiches as it mutes the avacado taste, thus the reason to use Miracle Whip salad dressing over mayonnaise.

I like Swiss cheese slices over a bed of chopped lettuce, with sliced onions, topped with mashed up avacado and some plain Miracle Whip salad dressing on white bread. Very simple and delicious.

Alternatively, mashed up avacado, bean sprouts with sharp cheddar cheese slices, chopped up lettuce, some Miracle Whip salad dressing on white bread. Also simple and delicious.

Many people detest Miracle Whip and it would ruin any sandwich for me Caslon. Give me only Best Foods (Helman's) mayo every time.

Speaking of avocado's I cut open a perfectly ripe (not over ripe) one yesterday and got a big surprise. There wasn't a pit inside, only the very small skin of a pit There was no hard pit at all, and the perfect flesh was delicious. In my life long love of avocado's I've never seen anything like that.

I don't like Salad Dressing for sandwiches either. I go with mayo, but I might buy a small jar of Miracle Whip salad dressing next time just to see if it makes a difference with avacado sandwiches.

There used to be a restaurant, Denny's, it might still be around, that had a grilled vegetable sandwich on their menu in the 80's. They changed the menu sometime in the 90's and this vegetable sandwich disappeared. It was grilled on some substantial bread, avocado slices, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, 2 kinds of cheese. It was delicious.

I use them both very often and feel the opposite. Miracle Whip can be a hammer to delicate flavors it's used with.
