Avocado, Lettuce, and Tomato — Made at Home

Avocado, lettuce and tomato on sourdough, sliced in half.

Inspired by a sandwich I had a short time ago, I set about making a light and healthy — but still hearty — sandwich. A couple of fine avocados, some tomato and red-leaf lettuce, a drizzle of oil, and salt and pepper to taste. A bit of a different spin on the classic BLT, which on California menus all too often becomes the ubiquitous BLAT. I feared that bacon may have been missed in the creation, but I am pleased to report that the end result was a fine sandwich. The San Luis Sourdough, lightly toasted, was the perfect bread for the job. As a first attempt, it was a bit light on the salt and pepper, and romaine would be preferred over the red-leaf, but this is highly recommended as a quick and light sandwich.

  1. I’ve just caught up with this site after what didn’t seem like a long absence, but turned out to be a lot of reviews due to there being three contributors now. Soem ejoyable reads as always.

    I notice a particular penchant for avocado, Pete and might try this sandwich some time.

  2. Well I hope you do, but Bill wrote up this sandwich, not me! The name of the author isn’t particularly noticeable in the design I’ve got here, but ideally all of our posts are tagged with “Reviews by [author].”

  3. Whoops, I really wasn’t paying attention there! I noticed that there are three of you doing these posts now, but somehow took my eye off the ball with this one.

    That makes it even more interesting to me, avocado seems to be a popular choice for two writers (maybe all three?) here.

    • Well the thing about avocados is that they’re tremendous. Are they not popular on your isle?

      • Hmmm, I couldn’t really say whether they’re popular here. Probably not that popular if i had to take a guess. They’re certainly readily available and guacamole is pretty popular. I like avocados but I don’t eat them that often.
