Original Recipe on Taste As You Go

  • 1 vine-ripe tomato, sliced 1/4-inch thick*
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  •  Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 slices pumpernickel bread, toasted

  1. Season the tomato slices with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, mash together the avocado and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  3. Place two slices of the toasted pumpernickel bread on your cutting board. Spread half of the avocado mixture on one slice and half on the other.

  4. Lay two slices of seasoned tomatoes on each of the avocado-topped pieces of bread. Top with the remaining pieces of toasted bread.

  5. Slice the sandwiches in half and serve immediately.

* From the garden is best, but you can obviously make this sandwich any time you find good-quality produce in your local market.
