    Hey Jude's Note:

    Avocado takes the place of mayonnaise in this delicious sandwich, making it healthier. For just my husband and myself I made this using two large Italian sandwich rolls but I'm posting the recipe the way I found it in our neighborhood Pioneer Press newspaper. The cilantro was added by me.
