Avocado Lettuce Tomato Sandwich on Simply Recipes

Avocado Lettuce Tomato Sandwich (ALT)

  • Prep: 10 minutes

The key to a delicious A.L.T. is salt. The flavor of both avocados and tomatoes shines with the addition of a little sprinkling of salt.

Ingredients

  • Toasted whole grain bread
  • Sliced avocado (see How to Cut and Peel an Avocado)
  • Lettuce (Boston Bibb or butter lettuce work well)
  • Sliced fresh tomato
  • Kosher salt
  • Mayonnaise

Method

1 For each sandwich, toast two slices of whole grain bread. While the bread is toasting, slice your tomato and avocado.

2 Slather as much (or little) mayonnaise as you like on one side of each slice of toasted bread. Add a layer of sliced avocado and sprinkle a little kosher salt over it. Add a layer of lettuce and a layer of sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle a little salt over the tomatoes too.

3 Top with the second slice of toasted bread. Cut the sandwich in half if you want, to make it easier to eat.  Enjoy!
