I made this sandwich – with cranberry-nut bread, avocado, homemade edam cheese, peppered turkey, and pickled red onions. There’s something wonderful and simple and summery about sandwiches. I ate it sitting outside in the shade, with a glass of lemonade.
Turkey and Avocado Grilled Cheese
- 2 slices whole wheat bread
- 3 TBS quick pickled red onions
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 TBS raw onion, finely diced
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 4 slices black pepper turkey
- 1 handful arugula
- 2 slices cheddar cheese
- 1 TBS butter
Mash avocado with raw onion and salt until creamy. Spread on one slice of bread. Top with pickled red onions, then arugula, then turkey, then cheese. Top with other slice of bread. Melt 1/2 of butter in frying pan over medium heat. Add sandwich, with the cheese layer closest to the heat. Spread remaining butter on exposed piece of bread. Cook for 3-5 minutes, until you smell the butter toasting and the cheese begins to melt, then carefully flip, and cook for 3 minutes on the other side. Serve warm with a glass of lemonade.
