The California Sandwich
Ingredients
Almost all the ingredients in this sandwich, especially the sprouts and avocado, are associated with the health craze of the 1960s and '70s in California. It isn't so much that a Californian created this recipe, but rather that the combination has come to be synonymous with California cuisine. Multigrain bread is part of that trend, and so-called California sandwiches are often vegetarian, as in this version. You could also include slices of turkey with the cheese.
8 slice multigrain bread
2 whole Avocado, peeled and pitted, halved and cut into wedges
4 oz Sharp cheddar cheese slices
1 cup Fresh alfalfa sprouts
1 each Large tomato, cored and thinly sliced into 8 pieces
1/4 teaspoon Black pepper, ground
