Cucumber and Avocado Sandwich
yield: 2 SANDWICHES
prep time: 15 MINUTES
total time: 15 MINUTES
4 slices Dave’s Killer Bread, 21 Whole Grains and Seeds
4 ounces herbed goat cheese, at room temperature
2 Romaine lettuce leaves, washed and dried
1/2 of a large cucumber, peeled and sliced
1 large avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
½ cup alfalfa sprouts
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Spread the herbed goat cheese evenly on all of the slices of bread. Take one of the slices and top with lettuce, cucumber slices, and avocado slices. Drizzle a little fresh lemon juice over the cucumbers and avocados. Add some sprouts and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
Place a piece of bread, goat cheese side down, on top to sandwich all of the fillings together. Repeat with second sandwich. Serve immediately.
Note-if you can’t find herbed goat cheese, you can add herbs to plain goat cheese or just use plain goat cheese. This sandwich is best the day it is made.

1/3 cup broken walnut pieces
1 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 pound green beans, stem ends trimmed, cut into 1-in. lengths

How to Make It
Combine walnuts, garlic and salt in a food processor and blend until finely ground. (If preferred, walnuts, garlic and salt can be pounded into a paste with a mortar and pestle.) Combine walnut mixture, oil and vinegar in a salad bowl and whisk until blended.
Cook green beans in boiling salted water until crisp-tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain well, rinse with cold water, spread on a dish towel and pat dry.
Add green beans, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, cilantro, dill and mint to walnut dressing and toss to blend.
