This Turkey and Sprouts on Ciabatta is the perfect summer sandwich. I keep my house pretty warm. Because it is already so warm, I rarely turn on my oven in the summer. Sandwiches and salads are king in our house.
I even buy my bread a lot of times...I know, I know. We have some great bakeries in Boise though, so it's worth it. I love ciabatta, but honestly don't love making it. The $4.00 price tag was worth it to me. Zeppole is my bakery of choice.
I used a sriracha mayo for this sandwich. If you have followed me for awhile, you know we love a little spice in just about everything we make. The mayo is so simple to make! Start with your favorite mayo.
Add in your sriracha sauce. The amount of sauce will depend on the level of heat you like. We usually use a 1:1 ratio.
I also like to add just a pinch of salt to the sauce.
Start assembling the sandwich. I put a layer of the mayo on top and bottom.
I used a pepper turkey for this one. Boar's Head has a great selection of deli meats we love.
Next is avocados. Always avocados.
Red onions are also a staple in our house.
The hubs and I get tomatoes, but the boys pass. I feel like someday they will grow into them, I did.
If you have tomatoes on a sandwich, you have to salt them. I mean, I guess you don't HAVE to, but they are so much better if you do.
Now, layer on those sprouts. I just love sprouts so much. What about you? Plus, they are so nutritious! Check this post out about sprouting and sprouts. There are many others as well.
Top your sandwich and it is ready to go. Now, you can sub in or add to this sandwich depending on personal preference.
I know people think grilling is king in summer time. I really think sandwiches are where it's at!
If you are looking for a new sandwich idea, give this one a try. If you are looking for another great option? What about this BLAT sandwich? It has been really popular on the blog and Pinterest.
- ½ cup mayo of choice
- 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce we actually prefer a 1:1 ration with the mayo. If you are a little unsure of how hot you can handle, the 2 tablespoons is a great place to start.
- pinch salt
- pinch ground black pepper
- Mix all ingredients. Taste. Adjust as needed. This can be made and stored for up to 5 days in an air tight container in the fridge. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
