Tomato-Avocado Grilled Cheese

  • Makes: 4 sandwiches
  • Start to Finish: 25 mins


  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, seeded, and peeled
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 8 slices whole grain bread
  • 6 ounces reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese, sliced

  1. In a small bowl use a fork to mash together avocado, lemon juice, cumin, and salt until smooth. Stir in parsley. Set aside.
