yields 8 sandwiches

16 thin slices grain bread
16 slices bacon, halved crosswise
2 red onions, cut into small dice
2 medium tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch dice
8 sprigs cilantro, roughly chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
16 mint leaves
2 jalapeno peppers, cut into small dice
4 avocados, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
4 limes, juiced
8 thin slices gravlax, plus 2 more slices cut into 16 strips crosswise and rolled into rosettes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Toast the bread slices and let cool.

Roast the bacon in oven until crisp.

Chop red onion, tomato, cilantro, garlic, mint leaves, and jalapeno finely. Put in a bowl. Add the avocado and pour in lime juice. Toss the avocado mixture and season well with salt and pepper.

Place 1 tablespoon avocado mixture on each slice of gravlax. Fold the gravlax into a square, so that the avocado is wrapped in the center. Place the bacon and gravlax between 2 slices of bread. Cut the sandwich diagonally. Place a rosette on top each half and place 2 pieces of bacon on top of the rosette.
