This avocado and tomato sandwich embodies all sorts of nutritional virtues: whole grains, healthy fats and fresh vegetables. But really it does even more than that . . . it exemplifies how enjoyable even the simplest fresh food can be.
- 4 slices whole grain sandwich bread
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and halved
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 large tomatoes (preferably heirloom), sliced
- 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Coarse sea salt
Toast the bread and rub with the cut side of the garlic halves. Spread the avocado on each slice of bread and top with tomato slices. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.
