Avocado and Mango Sandwiches with Cilantro Lime Mayo

I adore my hubby…I just love him…

When we first got married I quickly noticed how set he was in his eating habits…wow! I mean I like me some eggs but every morning?? What about meat ya I like it, but every meal…no way sir…I mean my love. My body needs fish, chicken oh and my lovely turkey…what about just vegging out for dinner? These are the times when i know my man loves me-he tried everything…and really to his surprise they were good??? He often tells me “why didn’t my mom ever make this?” “Well babe she did have six kids running around–she was busy!!” But between you and me–we both know I’m just a remarkable women who can’t be touched in the kitchen–hear that sizzle?? Ya it’s me baby!! Well on his way home from his night class-he calls me to tell me he’s coming home (he always does which is another reason I love him–he always calls–men reading  we like this!)  Here is our conversation



“Ya babe”

“i’m on the way, what ya make for dinner?”

“Babe I just made the best sammy, your gonna love it?”

“Really- what’s in it?”

“Oh babe-it’s got avocado,mango, spinach,cilantro and lime with mayo.” –I’m excited can you tell??food does that to me.

“really? wow”   hear the hesitation in his voice…

“Ya babe your gonna love it!”

“okay I’ll be right there.”–he’s worried no meat? he’s questioning me?

 After taking his first bite—“Wow babe this is really good, I would have never thought!”

hear the sizzle?

1/3 cup light mayo

1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves

1 tbsp fresh lime juice

coarse salt and ground pepper

8 slices of multi grain bread toasted

1 head bibb lettuce leaves separated

1 hass avocado, pitted and thinly sliced

1 mango peeled, pitted and thinly sliced

in a small bowl, combine may, cilantro and lime juice; season with salt and pepper.

dividing evenly spread toasts with mayo mixture. Top 4 toasts with lettuce, mango, and avocado;cover with remaining toasts-serve

I made a double batch of the mayo mix to use for the rest of week. I also used spinach instead of bibb lettuce.

I know I know what’s up with all the Martha recipes–hey I have a subscription to all three of her mags -everyday food, body and souls and living…I had to stop all three- just the madness of it all— I have a whole bookshelf of these mags…I promise pinky swear I will mix it up!! Enjoy! sweetlife

    This is cute. I understand how your hubby feels, not that I need to have meat and eggs daily, but I’m not sure I would’ve been psyched at the mention of mango-avocado sammies. I mean, mango… LOVE. Avocado…LOVE. On a sandwich…????

    I won’t promise I’ll try it as a sandwich, I will, however, make it as a salad. The combo and dressing sound awesome!

    I get the SAME reaction from my fiance. He just thinks there has to be meat with every meal haha!
    what a great fresh sammy for spring time!!

    Aww, you guys are cute <3. And that sandwich looks great! You are definitely sizzlin' ;). I love mangos, it'd be interesting to see what they taste like in a sandwich.

    Delicious! I always make sandwiches like this one, but I never thought to put mango on it. That actually sounds wonderful with the creamy avocado and zesty lime/cilantro mayo.

    Oh, goodness, that chat with your husband is too cute, I like how you two call each other babe at every breath ;]

    And that is one interesting sandwich…the other night, I made avocado salad wraps, so I know that this sandwich must be tasty as well.
