Turkey Salad Sandwich

Most of us order or make turkey sandwich because it is the healthiest choice on the menu. How boring! But what if you had a recipe for it that was so full of flavor, that you would crave it and therefore make it all the time? Not only is this sandwich healthy, it is also a visual delight. Try any variation of ingredients you prefer to make turkey slices come alive with intense flavors.

Ingredients for 2 sandwiches:

4 slices of toasted slices of gourmet bread, such as olive/rosemary or focaccia
organic turkey slice
2 slices of swiss cheese
1 ripe tomato
½ of a medium bell pepper- sliced thinly
¼ of a small purple onion- sliced thinly
1 jalapeno- remove the seeds and slice thinly
small bunch of baby arugula leaves
1 small lemon
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

In a small bowl, toss bell peppers, onion, and jalapeno slices. Add to your mix the zest of your lemon and then use its juice to marinate your vegetable. Add salt, pepper and olive oil to taste.

Toast your bread pieces. On two of your slices, place a desired amount of arugula and tomato slices; followed with cheese, then turkey and finally a desired amount of your vegetable marinade. Finish with the final slices of bread.

Easy, fun, and full of flavor.
