Expert Tips

Shallots are in the onion family but have a milder flavor than onions. They are usually purplish in color and add a sweet yet savory zing to this sandwich.

Avocados are often sold when underripe. Plan ahead for this recipe; if your avocado doesn’t yield to gentle pressure from your finger, leave it on your countertop for a few days to completely ripen.
