Mashed avocado fills in for mayonnaise in this healthy, tasty sandwich. You can sprinkle the avocado with fresh lemon juice and salt for a boost of flavour. We love these sandwiches with spinach, but any leafy green would do the trick. Feel free to add thinly sliced grilled chicken breast or turkey for you meat-lovers out there or if you want to experiment with the recipe.
