Meal 1

Cucumber and Avocado Sandwich

yield: 2 SANDWICHES

prep time: 15 MINUTES

total time: 15 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS:

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

DIRECTIONS:

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.
