The tasty Tomato Avocado Sandwich with Creamy Yogurt Dressing is the perfect summer sandwich ... fresh, easy to make, and super delish!
When I was a kid, my mom always maintained a large garden. We ate out of that garden—beans, tomatoes, and corn were staples—all summer long.
My sister and I each had our own patch, too. I won't lie, mine was usually overtaken with weeds by the middle of summer.
The thought of that weedy patch still makes me smile!
Of course, now that I live in the city, garden fresh tomatoes are a little harder to come by. They're definitely worth seeking out though, especially for this Tomato Avocado Sandwich!
