My hubby and his co-workers needed a tasty and healthy alternative to lunch. The flavors come together wonderfully in this veggie sandwich. It is a true California flavor explosion! This is a great sandwich to eat during Lent when you can’t eat meat, or for a vegetarian meal anytime. You may toast the bread if you like, or add lettuce, cheese, or bacon.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 (1 ounce) slices whole-wheat bread
  • 1 large navel orange, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 2 large avocados - peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 1 (5 ounce) package alfalfa sprouts
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinaigrette

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Arrange four of the bread slices on a flat surface; top each slice with two slices of orange, even amounts of avocado slices, and even amounts of sprouts. Sprinkle each sandwich with 1/2 teaspoon of balsamic vinaigrette. Top each with remaining bread slices and serve.

  1. This was a surprisingly delicious combination! I used kale instead of alfalfa sprouts for extra healthiness and it tasted great.
  2. Flavor explosion you bet! Delicious is an understatement we loved it!! I made them into open face sandwiches to reduce the carbs & increase the veggies. I would not have thought of putting orange & avocado in a sandwich.......thanks a lot for the recipe.
  3. Absolutely adore this sandwich. I did add red onions and also tried a version of it with humus on the bread. Every way delicious!
  4. It's pretty good. I prefer putting light mayo on two pieces of bread then toasting them face down on a skillet until browned. I then put sliced avocado thinly sliced purple onion lightly salt and put a slice of cheese of your choice. I like swiss cheese. The important part is cooking he mayonaise into - Read more ...
  5. As a vegetarian I thought this sounded like a great idea for a sandwich but I found I liked the idea better than the execution. I really enjoy the taste of avocado but when I made this sandwich the avocado flavor was completely overpowered by the orange. I think I'll stick to tossing orange segments - Read more ...
  6. So refreshing! I loved the orange and avocado together. My orange was very juicy so it made for a "messy" sandwich but that's okay because it was so tasty. I think next time though I will made a salad with the orange avocado sprouts and balsamic on top of mixed greens.
  7. I loved the sandwich. It was really good.
  8. Wow tasty! I never would have thought to put together this combo but it really worked. Thanks for the recipe!
  9. This was great. I always mark the coming of spring by when the fruit and veggie stand in my neighborhood opens again. Went there this morning and got the makings of this sandwich among other things. This is a wonderful dish that tastes like fresh summer. Thanks for the recipe! p.s. I did use some - Read more ...
