Editor's Note: Avocado Sandwiches prove that you don't have to sacrifice taste for simplicity. Fresh and filling, this easy vegetarian recipe is sure to be a hit at a brunch or party. A delicious take on finger sandwiches, this avocado recipe pairs a buttery cilantro spread  with bacon, tomato, and avocados for a mouthwatering combination that's quick and easy to prepare. The spread is simple and doesn't take away from the vegetables' natural flavor, making this a refreshing dish to serve as a snack or a main course. But be warned - they're addicting, and your guests won't be able to stop after just one!

I love the idea of pairing cilantro and avocado, that sounds super refreshing! I definitely hope to try these out!

As a vegetarian, it can be kind of difficult to make sandwiches for picnics because everyone else is using deli meat or something. I've usually stuck with peanut butter, but I think I'll give avocado sandwiches a try this summer!
