I got the idea for this sandwich from a pizza that had pesto, goat cheese and cucumbers. I love to make wraps and sandwiches for my family because I can cram a bunch of different veggies with an array of different vitamins into one sammy.
There are a lot of goat cheeses out there – it seems like every country has one. Our local co-op, Bloomingfoods, usually has a little basket of cheeses for less than $3; this is a great way to explore new cheeses you have never had before.
This sandwich is a perfect mix of creamy and crunchy – what more could you ask for in a sandwich.
I’m using the last of my homemade pesto frozen from the summer, but there are lots of great store-bought and inexpensive pestos.
Ingredients (per sandwich):
- Goat Cheese – about 1 oz.
- 5 slices of cucumber
- 1/2 an avocado
- 1/8 – 1/4 cup broccoli sprouts
- 1/8 – 1/4 cup lettuce
- 2 tablespoon pesto
- 2 slices of bread
