Author Notes: This version of the classic chutney sandwich rocks. Panfusine

Food52 Review: Panfusine's fusion of mint, cilantro, and avocado with a touch of honey and a kiss of lime is utterly heavenly. The soft filling, the crunch of thin cucumber slices, and the surprise of the cumin come together to create the quintessential summertime sandwich. I will be making this often, as I honestly can't get enough of it. Thank you for a lovely addition to my summer repertoire.boulangere

Makes 6 to 7 sandwiches

  • 1 large or 2 small ripe avocados
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1 jalapeño, deseeded and finely minced
  • 1 cup packed cilantro (just the leaves)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 loaf white sandwich bread, sliced
  • Powdered cumin, toasted
  • 1 English cucumber, sliced paper-thin
  1. Combine avocado, mint, cilantro, lime , jalapeño and salt in a food processor to make a smooth spread. Adjust for salt, then refrigerate until needed.
  2. Spread the avocado 'butter' on two slices of bread, then add a layer or two of the cucumber. Sprinkle with toasted cumin and cover with the second slice of bread. Cut off the crusts off, then slice into three rectangles. Serve with afternoon tea.

Panfusine, it was a joy to test your fabulous sandwiches. I utterly love the filling and all its perfect components. I will make it often and find new ways to serve it. Thank you so much.

Delicious! I always think of the line from either the TV shows "Upstairs, Downstairs" or "Downton Abbey" that cucumbers should be sliced so thin, you can read the newspaper through them.

Love the description.. I couldn't have said it better! Merrill Stubbs had a photograph of such a translucent cucumber slice somewhere on this site!

Oh YUM! I love making avocado and sweet potato sandwiches, and I love beets and avocados in salads, and this is like the best of both worlds!
