  1. Use the spoon to scoop the avocado out of the peel. Put the scooped avocado flesh on one piece of toast and use the fork to mash it gently and spread it so it covers the toast.
  2. Sprinkle the avocado with a tiny bit of salt and pepper.
  3. Arrange the cucumber slices over the avocado, then add the tomato slices, lettuce leaf, and cheese.
  4. Top with the other slice of toast and gently press down to help the sandwich hold together. Cut the sandwich in half and serve right away.
