Green Goddess Sandwich

Have you ever had Green Goddess salad dressing? It's usually made from herbs (such as basil, parsley, and/or tarragon), mayonnaise or sour cream, lemon juice, vinegar, anchovy fillets and green onions and/or chives.

What I like most about the Green Goddess dressing, is its bright green color. That's why when I concocted the sandwich to the left, I decided to call it Green Goddess Sandwich. After all, it has several hues of green, and it's fit for a goddess ;)

This past Sunday I had to wake up early and was pretty hungry. I'm no longer eating eggs whenever I want, so I had to think of another quick breakfast idea.

That's when I remembered that I had some ingredients left from a salad I made the previous night: avocado, cucumbers and s of Palm.

Together with watercress, cilantro and whole wheat bread, creamy avocado, crunchy cucumbers and marinated hearts of Palm made for a beautiful, delicious and nutritious breakfast.

Green Goddess Sandwich

Ingredients for 1 sandwich
2 slices of whole wheat bread, toasted
small avocado, sliced
1 small Persian cucumber, sliced
2 Hearts of Palm, sliced lengthwise
6 watercress leaves
10 cilantro leaves
salt & pepper
{clearly, these are just approximations}

Directions
1. Assemble the sandwich, slice in half diagonally.


Surprisingly, the sandwich held up pretty well and did not fall apart after the first bit. I think a few slices of tomatoes would have been a great addition...but then that's what I typically think.

For another green sandwich, check out my Avocado, Pistachio & Arugula sandwich.

Love green goddess dressing. Just wish avocados didn't make me so violently ill so I could enjoy your sandwich.

I love to make sandwiches with avocado, but I never thought to put hearts of palm on a sandwich. What a great idea!

I've never been greener with envy (hehe) :P

Looks scrumptious, and definitely up my alley as a vegetarian!

What a strange and strangely brilliant monochromatic sandwich! I will definitely have to try this one: It's straight up my alley.
