Here is a quick colorful and cool dinner or lunch any day of the week. In about 10 minutes you can make these great gourmet looking sandwiches and still keep the house cool. I found the richest looking bun I could find. I am sure you could even make your own. The raspberry chipotle added just the right kick of flavor and sweetness. I will continue to make these sandwich again and again. This recipe serves four. At 395 Calories.Grilled Avocado and Tomato Sandwiches with Raspberry Chipotle Mayo
