Produce is coming in everywhere right now in my neck of the woods. All kinds of fantastic veggies and fruits to enjoy fresh out of the garden. My mother-in-law was gracious enough to share LOTS of tomatoes with me, and they are delicious! So I was trying to think of a good way to use them. In the summer, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a good tomato sandwich! Just put some mayo on bread and load it up with fresh tomatoes! But I wanted to find a different way to make my sandwich, because I wanted it healthier and a different taste. This is what I came up with!
I started with a ripe avocado that I bought at the grocery store.
I peeled it and took out the pit. Then I mashed it up really well with a fork.
Next, I took a couple of those yummy tomatoes that were fresh from my mother-in-laws garden. They looked GREAT!
I sliced them in thick slices. When I make a tomato sandwich, I like to be able to get a nice, thick bite, so I can taste it really well!
Then, I spread half of the avocado on each side of my whole wheat bread.
I loaded the tomatoes onto the avocado.
Then, I put it all together to make a fantastic tasting summer sandwich!
This sandwich was so absolutely delicious! And it was a great was to use some of that fresh-from-the-garden produce! But it wasn't only tasty. It was a very healthy meal.
