Anytime you want a quick lunch or dinner, sandwiches are probably the easiest to put together. Bread, protein, fresh vegetables, cheese and usually a good sauce. The combination is a fantastic way to keep you satisfied and provide the nutrients you need to go on with your day.

If you’ve made our chipotle pecan pesto, this turkey sandwich is another great way to enjoy the pesto. Also, regular pesto works just fine with this recipe.

The rest assembly line includes a few slices of a good loaf of bread, some cooked turkey breast, dried cranberry, fresh tomato slices, chopped iceberg lettuce and a couple slices of Havarti cheese.

Once you get all ingredients prepared, which should take no more than 10 minutes, go ahead and layer it up. I suggested an order of layers in the recipe below. But you can really just do whatever you feel like. It’s going to be amazing! I promise. Hope you enjoy!

  1. My husband is obsessed with pesto for some odd reason. I actually didn't know he was until recently. Never thought about putting it on a sandwich for him! Brilliant and tasty!
