52 sandwiches #3: california BLT

I modified this recipe from Ina Garten.  This is her California BLT from her book Barefoot Contessa at Home.  For this sandwich, I spread light mayonnaise on a slice of toasted, whole wheat bread.  I topped it with 2 slices of crispy, turkey bacon; romaine lettuce; avocado slices, which were gently tossed with lemon juice; tomato slices; and sprinkled with salt and pepper.  I spread more mayonnaise on the other slice of toasted, whole wheat bread and topped the sandwich with it.
BLT sandwich 1 This is a really good sandwich.  It's like Ina Garten says in her book, "I love a good bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, but this is even better. . . the avocado puts it right over the top."  I highly recommend this one!
