aarp & a sammy.

{aioli, avocado}
{with asparagus}

asparagus, avocado & red pepper aioli sammy 
(get it, aarp?!  hahaha.  don't mind me, i have a tendency to crack myself up)
serves 2

roasted red pepper aioli
1/2 cup mayonaise
3-4 roasted red peppers
2 garlic cloves
salt and pepper to taste

2 thick pieces of artisan bread, toasted
4-5 stalks of fresh asparagus
1 avocado, scored

to make aioli, combine mayo, red peppers and garlic into a food processor and pulse until all items are pureed and combined.

meanwhile, heat oven (i use my toaster oven) to 400 degrees.  cut asparagus into 2 inch pieces, lay on tray and sprinkle with olive oil and roast until tender (about 20 minutes).  let cool.

take the two pieces of artisan bread, and generously spread red pepper aioli on both pieces.  cut avocado in half and gently mash one half on each piece of bread.  then place a layer of asparagus on top of each half of the bread.  sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste & serve open-faced.

you know, this would be great paired with a spring salad and a glass of white wine.
