Peach, Bacon, Avocado Sandwich

I can barely keep up with all the fresh produce this time of year. With so many tempting recipes to highlight the tomatoes, peaches, berries, and corn, it makes me wish the month of August lasted for at least half the year.

The second I saw this recipe in my Food Network Magazine, I knew I’d be making it. I had most of the ingredients on hand, thanks (once again) to our CSA box. I also had some avocado in the fridge from a snack earlier in the week. So I obviously decided to add that to the sandwich. When does avocado make things worse? How about never.

As I mentioned the other day on Facebook, I always whip up homemade mayo this time of year for my tomato sandwiches. I loved the addition of basil and lemon to the sauce for this sandwich.

Like most sandwich recipes, if you don’t have all of these ingredients on hand, feel free to make this sandwich with substitutions. I’ve made it a couple times in the last few weeks using spinach instead of arugula, and once even left out the avocado.
