The best turkey avocado sandwich with arugula. Topped with a spicy Sriracha Aioli. Boom. Lunch is served. Gluten Free + Dairy Free too.
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 avocado 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 turkey avocado sandwich.
You could serve the assembled turkey avocado 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?
Arugula + alfalfa + Sriracha aioli + turkey avocado sandwich = Boom. Happiness in your mouth.
