Sacramento Sandwich

The goat cheese and avocado surely make up for the meat on this sandwich and you won’t feel deprived at all. Packed with healthy MUFA and tons of veggies, this will surely be a favorite of yours like it is mine. If you are packing it for work or school, just pack the vinegar separately and pour over just before serving.
