When it comes to sandwiches, sometimes less is better. You can try piling on the ingredients and condiments, but in the end, it’s hard to beat the perfect combination of ripe summer tomato with avocado on whole-grain bread, or sliced radishes and salted butter on a baguette. Saveur celebrates this simplicity with a gallery of their favorite 2-ingredient sandwiches, including several surprising pairings.

Some of the sandwiches in the gallery includes some familiar favorites, but there are quite a few intriguing combinations, such as apple butter and smoked gouda on sourdough, ham and sliced hard-boiled egg on white, and peanut butter and bacon (!) on whole-wheat.

They missed a few of my own personal favorites: arugula and prosciutto on a baguette, peanut butter and banana on toasted whole wheat, and hummus and sliced cucumber on pita bread.
