Dinner Tonight: Avocado and Sprout Club Sandwich

I just needed a sandwich to pair with some soup, which led me to the good old-fashioned club sandwich. I looked into some of the classic preparations and somehow ended up here, with a sandwich that is as far away from a classic club sandwich as possible. I mean, goat cheese? Alfalfa sprouts?

I would never have picked this recipe had it not been approved by Martha Stewart. I don't, honestly, eat alfalfa sprouts that often, but I do love what they do here. Along with the radishes, they provide some much needed texture to balance the creamy avocado and cheese. Though different from a traditional club sandwich, it is still delicious, albeit in a meat-free kind of way.
