A wholesome sandwich great for lunch or a light dinner. The recipe calls for sliced bread however I used a couple of ciabattas. On afterthought I think sliced bread would have been better. 

Makes 4 servings
  • 1/3 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 8 slices bacon 
  • 1 avocado, halved and pitted 
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt 
  • salt and freshly ground pepper 
  • 8 slices whole-grain bread, lightly toasted 
  • 8 small leaves romaine lettuce 
  • 1 tomato, cut into 8 slices 
  • 350g turkey breast, in slices
  • 1/2 small cucumber, sliced

Toss the onion with the vinegar and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl. Let stand 15 minutes, then drain. 

Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Mash the avocado with the yogurt in another small bowl until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. 

Lay the 4 slices of bread on a cutting board and spread with half of the avocado-yogurt mixture. Top with the lettuce and tomato and season with salt and pepper. Add a layer of turkey breast, bacon, cucumber and red onion. Spread the remaining avocado mixture on the remaining 4 bread slices and place spread-side down on top of the sandwiches. 

Cut each sandwich in half to serve.
