Smoked salmon sandwich

I rarely have a sandwich for lunch these days as my lunches at work mostly consist of lentils, quinoa, chickpeas and soups. A smoked salmon sandwich is a healthier lunch (but high in salt!) I used to have quite often in the past but I don’t really have it anymore as I found other alternatives. However, I still wanted to share this idea for lunch with you. You can use a different type of bread for this, such as brown pitta bread, brown wraps or bagels.

Quick and easy lunch for work

Ingredients

  • 2-4 pieces of wholegrain bread (or other type of bread, such as pitta)
  • smoked wild salmon slices
  • lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 tomato (sliced)
  • 4-8 cucumber slices
  • lemon juice

Instructions

  • Start with the avocado. If it's ripe enough you can use the knife to spread it on bread almost like butter, otherwise just slice it thinly and put is on a slice of bread. You could create 2 small sandwiches with a quarter of an avocado in each, depending on avocado's size.
  • Put lettuce leaves on top of the avocado, followed by smoked salmon slices.
  • If desired you could put some lemon juice on top salmon.
  • Add tomato and cucumber slices on top.
  • Depending on the size of your bread loaf, you could make one big sandwich or 2 small ones.

Notes

You can also use brown pitta bread or wraps for this purpose.
