tablespoon lemon juice
teaspoon ground cumin
tablespoons snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
slices whole grain bread

tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
- In a small bowl use a fork to mash together avocado, lemon juice, cumin, and salt until smooth. Stir in parsley. Set aside.
- Top four of the bread slices with the cheese. Spread with the avocado mixture and top with tomato slices. Place the remaining bread slices on top of tomato slices. Spread top of the bread slices lightly with half of the butter.
