Grilled avocado and mango sandwich in 15 minutes!

By Lakshmi:

Those who have read a few of my posts know my routine!  I get a few ingredients out and let them guide me to an impromptu lunch.

Today, here’s what I had in my trusted fridge.

Whole grain bread, lime, cilantro, mango, avocado, red onion

I’ve read of folks making mango salsa. Of course, I love guacamole. So I thought why not bring the flavors together?  Here’s how I assembled this sandwich.

Trim the bread.

Squeeze lime juice generously on both bread slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper (you could use taco seasoning or lime flavored mayonnaise instead).

Layer sliced mangoes, avocados, chopped onions and cilantro on the bread.  Sprinkle some pepper.  Here’s what my assembled sandwich looked like.

Cover with the second slice of bread and grill in a panini press or a griddle.  Cut into slices and serve with your favorite salsa.
