Refreshing cucumber, salad cress, avocado, rocket and basil are layered up between slices of malted grain bread in this perfect summer sandwich. 

Prep time: 20 minutes

Servings: 4 people


Arrange 4 of the slices of bread on a chopping board.

Trim the ends of the cucumber, cut in half then slice each half lengthways into 4 thick slices.

Place 2 slices of cucumber on 4 of the pieces of bread and season with a little pepper.

Divide the snipped cress between the slices of bread, arranging on top of the cucumber.

Top with the slices of avocado and squeeze over a little lemon juice.

Mix the remaining lemon juice with the olive oil and a little seasoning.

Mix the rocket and basil leaves in a bowl and dress with the lemon and oil mixture.

Divide this between the sandwiches on top of the avocado.

Spread the remaining 4 slices of bread with the blue cheese, if using, then sandwich together before tucking in.
