Roasted Turkey and Avocado Sandwich is one of the best things you can make with your leftover roasted Turkey. If you are one of those who buy extra large turkey for your thanksgiving or christmas dinner so that there will be a lot of leftovers afterwards, you might still have leftover turkey in your freezer. Probably, you already know what to make with it. If you are in search for some new ideas though, try this ridiculously simple yet sinfully tasty sandwich.
You can make this Roasted Turkey and Avocado Sandwich in smaller size, just like small canapes and serve as a wonderful appetizer at your next party. You need just 5 simple ingredients for this sandwich: avocado, lemon, turkey, spinach and pickles. I can’t think of a yummy sandwich without pickles, can you?
I used some baby spinach leaves to give my sandwich a little crispiness. I do love raw spinach, it’s way better than cooked spinach. If there is a spinach hater in your family, just squeeze lime on fresh spinach leaves, sprinkle a pinch of salt, put them on a slice of bread and ask them to try. I guarantee they will start to love this very healthy greenness. So spinach leaves are the perfect complementin salads or sandwiches like this one.
Roasted Turkey and Avocado Sandwich is far from the high-calorie sandwiches loaded with mayo. Creamy mashed avocado makes a perfect spread and you won’t even need the creaminess of mayo. This super simple sandwich is definitely packed with healthy fats, protein and irresistible yumminess.
So if you need a little twist on your leftover roasted turkey, you don’t need to look for any further. The best thing about this sandwich is that you can prepare it beforehand an deven take it to work or picnic. Just make sure you use enough lime in the mashed avocado to help it keep its lovely color.
