The Ultimate Green Sandwich

Ultimate Green Sandwich with avocado and salad
Kate Broman

This sandwich is healthy and versatile because you can use whichever veggie combination you like. Add some herbed goat cheese and homemade dressing to the mix and you have yourself a healthy sandwich that is not only good for you, but also tops in flavour.

Serves: Two sandwiches
Time: 10 minutes



  • 4 large slices whole grain bread
  • 30g goat cheese
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 small red or green capsicum
  • a few thin slices of red onion
  • 1/4 cup alfalfa sprouts or pea shoots
  • 1 ripe avocado, half smashed for spread, half sliced

Yoghurt dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste


In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients for dressing and set aside. Slice cucumber, green pepper, and avocado into strips. Spread half of the goat cheese on one slice of bread. Layer with cucumbers, capsicum, sprouts, red onion and a drizzle of the yoghurt dressing. Top with half of the avocado slices. Add more cracked pepper. Spread smashed avocado to second slice of bread. Repeat with second sandwich.

Just have a big salad for lunch, don't need a fancy dressing, just add a little salt, avocado, and tahini, grate a little ginger and turmeric in for good measure. Salad means lettuce, cucumber, capsicum, grated carrot and/or beetroot, celery, and add a little cooked brown rice or sweet potato.

'Salad' can mean absolutely any vegetables and a mix of cooked and raw as well. No need to be prescriptive about any particular mix except to say have as many different colours as you can possibly get.

I was just giving an idea, of course you can use whatever you like.
