How to make a low-carb avocado, strawberry and goat cheese sandwich

Print this recipe
Sandwiches may not sound like the most exciting meal, but when you’ve been eating low-carb for a while, you may really start to miss this old lunchtime standby. I’ve found lots of delicious recipes for low-carb sandwich bread online and they’re perfect for making the recipe below – an open-faced sammie that combines creamy avocado with sweet, juicy strawberries and tangy goat cheese.
Adding a drizzle of syrupy, tart-sweet aged balsamic vinegar (or a balsamic vinegar reduction) takes this recipe to a whole new level. If you don’t want to pony up for a pricy bottle of aged balasamic, you can make your own reduction with regular balsamic vinegar. Just bring the vinegar to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook until it becomes syrupy.
