Apple + Avocado + Turkey = great sandwich!Although it sounds strange, the Avocado offers a creamy texture and buttery flavour. The Apple offers a "crunch" and contrasting sweet and sour flavour. And the turkey offers something of medium body and slightly salty. For me, that is a perfect bite! Even my kids enjoy this sandwich as have other guests at our home. Give it a try - I am pretty sure you will like it too!
"A" + Turkey Sandwich
Sliced turkey meat* turkey roast or deli
Avocado - thinly sliced (approx 1/4 avocado per sandwich)
Apple - thinly sliced
Sliced bread of your choice* - toasted
* See cook's notes below for more details
Toast the bread to your desired liking.
Top with turkey, thin slices of apple and avocado to cover the surface and finish with a twist of mustard.
Close the sandwich with the top slice of bread and cut the sandwich on the diagonal. In my own uniqueness, I believe appearance of food has a lot to do with our enjoyment of it and a diagonal cut sandwich always look and enjoy and taste better in my books. Enjoy on it's own or with a side salad.
Turkey meat: If you have leftover roast turkey that would be ideal for this sandwich. However, I am not a cooker of turkey so that does not happen at my house. And I know many have mixed reviews of deli meat but at our place, we do have some deli meats for quick and simple lunches. I buy ML Natural Selections Turkey which does not have nitrates and has ingredients that I am okay with for the sake of convenience. If you have not tried Natural Selections, I think it is worth a try and the price. If you have other deli selections that are great, or other alternatives, please feel free to share.
Bread: At our home, we really try to avoid wheat/added gluten so our breads are usually Spelt or Kamut with Flax. And since these breads do not have the additives that keep bread soft and moist, I freeze it. Therefore, we toast our bread for the best sandwiches...plus we like the crunch it offers in our food.
