Avocado and Black Olive Sandwich

Last week my boyfriends parents gave us a lot of avocados from their tree.  


Yesterday when I checked to see how they were ripening I discovered 2 ripe avocados!  I was so excited to have a nice avo sandwich for lunch and this sandwich is so great! The combo of avocado and black olive really makes this scrumptious.  This will be great for tomato soup a great dipping sandwich.





  • 2 slices Toasted wholewheat bread
  • half a avocado, mashed
  • 6- 10 black olive slices
  • 7 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dash cayenne pepper – optional


Place the mashed avocado on one slice of bread, top with the black olives and basil.  


Season with salt, pepper and cayenne and top with the other bread slice and cut.


Serve immediately.

Have a lovely weekend 🙂
