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.

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!
