I love sandwiches. Only on special occasion though. Which I classify as either, when I’m on vacation (with friends or family) or when I’m hungover. On those two instances I need sandwiches in my life.

Day to day I can go without them, but there’s no group girl trip that can go without a large, hearty, wholesome, delicious, fresh and crisp sandwich.

And since I don’t eat sandwiches on the reg when I do, it must be a good one. No sad looking cold cuts squashed between two pieces on cold toast for me. Uh-uh. That will simply never do.

I need flavor, I need life to my sandwich. And that starts with a good quality cold cut. Meet Oscar Mayer Selects Natural. The cold cuts with no artificial ingredients, no artificial preservatives, no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no added hormones, no by-products and gluten-free.

There are a five product flavors to choose from, from slow roasted turkey breast, to roast beef, ham and chicken breast. I opted for the classic turkey. Can’t go wrong with a turkey sandwich. Am I right?

For the additional toppings, the avocado was a no brainer – I mean how would a sandwich be a proper sandwich without a generous layer of soft smashed avo, right?

And I’m currently obsessed with alfalfa sprouts – I mean they just are bursting with life and crunch and freshness like nothing else out there.

Arugula has a bit of that sharp kick that is nicely contrasted against the soft avocado and fresh alfalfa.

I needed one final touch though, another contrasting flavor. Spicy aioli? You bet ‘ya. Mayo + Sriracha + lime juice and voila home made spicy aioli ready for the bread.

You could serve the assembled sandwich cold, but that’s no fun right?

Get out that frying pan, add a spoonful of oil and let’s get that bread nice and crusty and warm too.

Are you ready for this lunch or what?

Turkey + alfalfa + arugula + avocado + Sriracha aioli. Boom. Happiness in your mouth.

    Now that’s my kind of sandwich!! I adore alfalfa sprouts, my mom sprouted them all the time when I was growing up and I’ve continued to do the same. They really add the best flavor and texture to sandwiches. I’d love to chomp into one of these right now!
