Caprese Sandwich with Avocado

We are almost ready to give up our hearty stews and soups as Winter is leaving us until next year. For lighter fare, I turn to this sandwich, which makes for the perfect transition into Spring. Its great alone, as the sourdough speaks for itself. Or a great companion to that soup we were talking about relinquishing. Or maybe not just yet 😉

Yields: 1 big sandwich

What you’ll need:

  • 2 big slices of sourdough bread
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • 3 fresh mozzarella cheese slices (I used 3 oz)
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced
  • handful of fresh basil leaves
  • drizzle of Italian olive oil
  • Optional: pinch of salt for your tomatoes

How to:

Start by slicing your sourdough bread with a serrated knife. Believe it or not, the order in which the filling is placed on the sandwich makes a difference on how well your sandwich stays together. I place the tomatoes on the bottom, that way they create the most stable “base”. Next, layer mozzarella, avocado, then basil. Drizzle with olive oil and top with the other piece of sourdough. Presto!
