Spiced Avocado Sandwich

I've had this recipe for Spiced Avocado Sandwiches (compliments of Martha) bookmarked for months and finally decided to give it a whirl on Thursday. Result = So Fantastically Delicious! Seriously, it tastes like Summer. Yum. I even made it a second time for myself two days later...

Spiced Avocado Sandwich
Serves 2
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon green Tabasco sauce (I substituted 1 tbsp. of green salsa here)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup yellow grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 large or 2 small radishes, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 whole-wheat pitas (6 inches each), cut in half


  1. Halve and pit avocado. With a spoon, scoop out avocado flesh, cut into chunks, and transfer to a medium bowl. Add orange juice, Tabasco sauce, and coriander; season with salt and pepper. Mix gently to combine.
  2. Add tomatoes, cucumber, and radish. Combine, and divide mixture between 2 pitas. Serve immediately.

  1. This looks good! Avocados have been iffy lately, I will have to wait for avocado season to come around again before I make this one!
