California Sandwich

 I originally found a picture of this sandwich on Pinterest with no recipe, so I created something that looked similar. You can alter this recipe based on your taste. It would also taste amazing with pepper jack cheese or in a wrap. The chive-goat cheese spread recipe below makes enough to probably put on 10-12 sandwiches. I always make more than needed because it tastes amazing with anything especially on bagels, or served with crackers or cut up vegetables. The chive-goat cheese spread is definitely what gives this sandwich great flavor! Yummmm!

8 slices of whole wheat bread
1 tomato
1/2 of a cucumber
1 avocado

Chive-Goat Cheese Spread:
8 ounces fresh goat cheese, room temperature
4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
6 tablespoons minced chives
1 garlic clove, minced

To make the vegetable mixture, cut up the tomato, avocado, and half of the cucumber into bite size cubes. Squeeze either lemon or lime juice on the mixture to prevent the avocado from browning.

To make one sandwich, take about 1/4 cup of Chive-Goat Cheese Spread and spread evenly on two pieces of bread. This spread will act as the glue for the ingredients inside. Place about 1/3 cup of the vegetable mixture on one slice of bread. Place a handful of sprouts on the other slice of bread. Close the sandwich together and enjoy!!
