Eve Avocado, Tomato, Alfalfa, Russian, and 7-Grain

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Eve and I had a version of this sandwich in a mall someplace. The sandwich we had was remarkable in that every part of it was bad: The bread was stale, the tomato was tasteless, the alfalfa sprouts were old, and the avocado didn’t taste like an avocado; it just looked like one. And yet the idea of the sandwich, the thrust of which was avocado and Russian dressing, was so good that it ended up being a good sandwich. I like taking something like that sandwich–a good idea with bad execution–and making it great simply by paying attention to the details.

Yield: Makes 2 sandwiches

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 slices 7-grain bread
  • 1 ripe Hass avocado, halved and pitted
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Alfalfa sprouts
  • Russian Dressing, or any Russian dressing

Directions

Lay 2 of the bread slices on a work surface. Slice the avocado and divide the slices between the 2 pieces of bread. Lay the tomato slices on top of the avocado and top the tomato with a pile of fresh alfalfa sprouts on each sandwich. Pour dressing over everything (how much depends on how gloppy you like your sandwiches). Close up the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices. Cut the sandwiches in half, but try not to lose too much of the insides in the process.
