This is a simple lunch or dinner idea from Faith of An Edible Mosaic that comes together quickly, and is quite healthy, filling, and delicious. I think Faith described it perfectly so I’ll quote her summarization here: “The salty, crispy bacon and the smooth, creamy avocado pair perfectly, and the tomato and lemon juice really help to brighten the avocado’s flavor.” It’s truly wonderful!
recipe from An Edible Mosaic
(Yield: 1 sandwich)
2 slices multigrain bread (or any bread you like)
2-3 slices turkey bacon, cooked
2 large leaves lettuce, washed and dried
1/4 c cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 tsp lemon juice
Dash salt and pepper
Toast the bread. Mash the avocado and stir in the lemon juice, salt, and pepper; then mix in the tomato and scallion. Spread the avocado mixture on one slice of bread, then top with the lettuce, turkey bacon, and the remaining slice of bread.

Thanks for the much needed editing help! And toasted pecans would work great in those cookies.
Wheee! Thanks for letting me know.
I love it….Too bad I cannot eat avocados…It makes the inside of my mouth and throat itch like heck! The actual sandwich seems easy enough to make..Thanks =)
That is like the most tragic thing I’ve ever heard! Poor Marina. :( But a plain BLT is pretty good without the guac–at least you’re not allergic to bacon! Now THAT would be a real tragedy!
I think guac is good on just about everything..
