<span>Very, very, very, very, very good.  Both my fiance and I loved these--so simple and easy to make.  For two sandwiches, we used store-bought honey whole grain bread (lightly toasted), 2 strips each of reduced fat turkey bacon which we cooked in the oven at 375 for 10 minutes, and 2 oz. each of cold smoked wild salmon.  We cut the tomato slices fairly thick, used spring mix for lettuce, and also threw on a few slices of avocado.  It was delicious, simple to make, a great portion size, and something we will incorporate into our regular rotation from now on.  Highly recommended.</span><br />
