Sandwiches are a classic grab and go meal. Which is why they make perfect lunches. There are also endless possibilities when it comes to what goes between the bread, which keeps it versatile. This savory version is smeared with a generous amount of peanut butter mixed with cilantro, onion, garlic, and vinegar and piled with cool cucumber slices and creamy avocado. The result is one tasty sandwich. If you want to serve this as a fancy hors d’oeuvres, slice bread in half or half-triangles and skip adding the top piece.
