On days where you want a light refreshing lunch, this sandwich is easy to whip together and satisfies those very cravings.  Crisp vegetables go alongside creamy avocado to make your turkey sandwich a little more memorable.

I made mine an open faced sandwich so top the bread with guacamole.  Then add the vegetables and turkey.

Smoked Salmon Avocado Sandwich

The recent warm weather has reminded me of brighter days and I can’t believe February is wrapping up.  Although March can be a tricky month, it usually passes by quickly, and then we are finally finished with winter!  This sandwich is a light delicious meal, perfect for lunch and/or dinner.  The pink and green colors shout spring to me and brighten up the plate.  I realize smoke salmon is either loved or despised, so feel free to substitute with a different protein if you aren’t feeling it.

Smoked Salmon Avocado Sandwich (sorry for pretty relaxed proportions, you do you on this one!)

Smoked Salmon

Capers

Spinach

Guacamole

Place the spinach on top of the toasted bread.  Then dollop on the guacamole.  Add the salmon and then sprinkle with capers.  I prefer this to be an open faced sandwich.  Enjoy the last week of February!

Guacamole

I personally love anything that has avocado in it and this guacamole is one of my family’s favorite dips.  We use it with tortilla chips, chili, burritos, sandwiches, etc.  You can pull it together in a snap and everyone will love it!

Guacamole (large bowl)

4 avocados

1 lime, juiced

2 large gloves of garlic, minced

handful of cilantro, chopped

heaping teaspoon of salt (more to taste depending on your preference)

Cut the avocados in half.  Scoop out the pit.  Scoop the avocado out of the skin.  Place in a medium sized bowl.  Add the lime juice, garlic, cilantro, and salt.  Using a knife, slice the avocado until it reaches the texture you desire. (You can also mash the mixture if you want it smoother, but I prefer having chunks of avocado).  Then mix with a spoon to make sure everything is incorporated.  Place in a bowl and serve it up with tortilla chips!
