Did you know August is National Sandwich Month? It makes sense, it’s too hot too cook, it’s back to school time, and summer gardens are overflowing with fresh produce that are sure to enhance any sandwich. August really is the perfect time to get your sandwich on!

I am currently loving this Cucumber and Avocado Sandwich because it is fresh, simple, and the perfect meal for a hot summer day.

To make a good sandwich, You HAVE to start with good bread. We love using Dave’s Killer Bread, it is our favorite. For this Cucumber and Avocado Sandwich, I like to use their 21 Whole Grains and Seeds bread. It is loaded with whole grains and seeds. Each slice is packed with five grams of fiber and five grams of protein.

To make the sandwich, I spread herbed goat cheese on the slices of bread. Make sure the goat cheese is at room temperature so it spreads nice and easy. If you can’t find herbed goat cheese, you can use regular goat cheese and stir in some minced herbs. Basil, rosemary, or thyme would all be good options.

Next, I layer the sandwich with green goodness: lettuce, cucumbers, avocado, and sprouts. I also give the cucumber slices and avocado slices a little squeeze of fresh lemon juice. It keeps the avocado from browning and it also gives the sandwich a lovely burst of lemon flavor. Season the sandwich with salt and pepper and enjoy!

I love the green layers! This sandwich is great for an easy, no-cook lunch or dinner and it is a great way to use up those garden cucumbers.

  1. Where is anybody able to find sprouts? I’ve been looking for them for months and none of my grocery stores here in Seattle seem to carry them anymore.

    1. You can purchase a small starter kit to sprout your own at home for under $20 at most Ace Hardware stores.

    2. I have the same problem! no grocery store in the greater detroit area that I can find (even the jimmy johns which has them on the menu doesn’t have them avail for customers)
      Cynthia have you tried to grow the kit? What time of environment does it need? How successful were you?
      Thanks

    3. I got the sprouts from Food maxx. It’s a store that sells international food I don’t know if you have those in your area. Also a lot of stores would order stuff for you even if they don’t have it in stock you just need to talk to the store manager

  2. If I don’t like goat cheese and not a huge fan of cream cheese either, what else could I use 🙂 Can’t wait to try this!!

    1. Do you like those Laughing Cow wedges – I think they would work as they are spreadable.  Otherwise you might just try a little mayo?

  3. I like that you feature Dave’s Killer Bread, it’s the only bread we buy (if I don’t bake ours). Looking forward to browsing your site for more inspiration!

  4. Love this! My dad used to make me cucumber and cheese sandwiches when I was a little girl and this totally reminded me. This is a great adult twist on those. I’ll be trying this recipe.

  5. I’m not a huge fan of cucumber unfortunately but my Husband LOVES it! He’ll love this sandwich. It looks so vibrant, makes me want to like cucumber, haha!

  6. Hi this sandwich looks amazing, could I make it up the night before as I would like to take it to work with me.
    Where do you buy the bread from.
    Sur

  7. I love alfalfa sprouts but I can’t find them anywhere!  I’ve looked at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and both of the super markets in my town!  

    1. Cream cheese would work well. Basil would be a great addition! You could add in some parsley too and a little lemon! Dill and lemon would be good too!

  8. I’m looking forward to trying this sandwich with herbed cream cheese.  Saw the other comments about not being able to find alfalfa sprouts in 2016.  We have noticed this also in Oklahoma this year.  However, we can get broccoli sprouts and Onion sprouts.  Just interesting that alfalfa sprouts are hard to find . . . 

  9. I love this,but I have a problem with sodium intake. My blood pressure goes up when I take salt. So I cook without salt.

    ….such is life….

    1. 5 stars
      There is a sandwich called a “Bible Bread Sandwich”. You use Spike seasoning “without salt” cabbage slaw, unsalted sunflower seeds, a white cheese, and sprouts on a pita, or wrap. Does anyone have a great recipe for this sandwich??? I use to buy them at a Herb Shop. They were awesome! A couple recipes online are close.
