Cucumber Sandwich, not just for tea parties

While cucumber sandwiches usually just bring back memories of the bland tea party variety from my youth, I found that when you pair it with the right ingredients it makes you want to celebrate Meatless Mondays every day of the week. Here's the secret:

-Pair it with hearty whole grain bread, ripe avocado, and laughing cow cheese

-I'm talking good hearty bread, like the kind you find at a bakery (just buy a half loaf and use it for lunch)

It's healthy, filling, and totally satisfying.  Perfect for a pregnant lady might I add. I served mine with carrots and hummus.

Cucumber, Avocado, and Laughing Cow Sandwich:
