Back of 'Wich of the Week: Avocado and Mango With Cilantro-Lime Mayonnaise When a recipe calls for cilantro, I'm always forced to buy way more than I'll ever need, which leads me on a search for even more cilantro-centric recipes. That was the catalyst for today's 'Wich of the Week, which features an unorthodox combination of mango and avocado on healthy multigrain bread. This vegetarian sandwich has a refreshing tropical flavor that's alternately tangy and mild. The creamy avocado balances out the zip of the lime and the sweetness of the mango. I decided to make two versions: one vegetarian and one with ham for the hardcore meat eaters. But we all agreed that the sandwich was better without the ham, since the cold cuts overpowered the more delicate fruits. I do recommend you add some clover sprouts for added texture; just steer clear of the recalled ones! To get the recipe and step-by-step photos, .

I really liked the cilantro mayo - I'm not a big fan of cilantro, but this was good! I eat a lot of things with fruit thrown in (I love chicken salad with purple grapes). I will definitely be making this again! NotErasingMyself 9 years I don't like mayo, but I'd definitely eat the rest of the sandwich with a little dijon mustard instead. Aquamarina 9 years I like Mango,YUM! zazoza 9 years I made it last week and it was AMAZING. soooooooooooooo good! thanks so much yumsugar! ESTONE 9 years Looks so light and refreshing, especially without the meat. travels1680 9 years I made this last night and it was so yummy! I skipped the mayo and just mashed the cilanto into the avocado. AWESOME! Great idea! lynda-LNKitchen 9 years i get flummoxed by the size of a cilantro bunch too! somehow it's always good to me in a vietnamese style sandwich, using saigon sandwich (on larkin) as a guide. mmm mmm pate. GrapeBubbleGum 9 years I hate mayo, but I'd try a little of this! I love the cilantro/lime combo! I'd leave out the mango though. I don't like to mix fruit with savory foods for some reason. aimeeb 9 years Not for me... AKirstin 9 years YUM!! Minus the cilantro, which smells like cleaning fluid to me, this looks super good! refined101 9 years I also make my own bread, and this sounds absolutely delightful! I'm a big fan of sweet/salty combos, so I'll probably try it with a slice or two of turkey, or maybe some rotisserie chicken. Yum yum! AmberHoney 9 years Yummy! I'm making this for sure. I'm into making my own bread, with a bread machine to mix and knead, then I let it rise and bake in oven. As stated before my hubby is a bread boy and he'll love this. lickety-split 9 years ummmmmmmmmmmmm! i like the sauce and will usually eat anything with avacados. Zulkey 9 years I've made that sandwich and loved it but my only problem is that it was really slippery--it was best eaten kind of wrapped up to keep all the ingredients together. swt-strwbrry-sgr 9 years this isn't for me Tabloid 9 years Oh! One more thing, it's very healthy and it has omega-3. Also good for someone who's on diet. AIMEESUGAR 9 years i made this today- only i made it without the ham and sprouts and lime zest instead of lime juice- SOOOO good!! :drool: i dont even think it needs the mayo- if you have a good avocado and mango the combination of buttery and sweet are enough!! Tabloid 9 years I've tried something similar like this before and I really enjoy it. Delicious! FashionKid 9 years wow iam definetly making this at home:) Advah 9 years That looks delicious, I like the idea of combining mango and avocado! My only problem is I can't really find tasty mangoes at the moment, and I'd be afraid the sandwich would be tasteless and soggy. :( JovianSkies 9 years This sounds strange, but most likely tasty :-P I just happen to have sprouts in the fridge, too celebrity_soup 9 years wow! that looks delicious, those sprouts and avocado must go great together. i just might make one for lunch today :) haze1nut 9 years that bread sorta looks like my ezekiel sprouted sesame bread! i had a sandwich similar to this, avocado, sprouts, but i had it with morningstar tomato basil patty and fat free mozzareeella haute77 9 years I would definitely try this. This reminds me of the mango guacamole salsa I make. :) aoitenshi 9 years Mmm this looks so good!!!
