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. To learn more about the Oscar Mayer Selects Natural cold cuts check them out here. To good to be true? Luckily not!
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.

I agree with you about the need to add life to a sandwich. And these ingredients do just the trick. Alfafa and arugula do the trick nicely.
Right? Lifeless sandwiches are no good! Alfalfa and arugula definitely do the trick : ))

These sandwiches just made me so hungry! Love that this meat is all natural ingredients.
Kimberly @ The Daring Gourmet says
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!
Ooo I’ve never sprouted my own alfalfa sprouts — will have to try that some time!
Annie @ Annie's Noms says

Yes! Me too. Can’t stand a sad looking sandwich!

Brandon @ Kitchen Konfidence says
Love, love, loving this Vicky!! And I could probably slather that aioli on ALL the sandwiches.
Thanks! It is the best aioli : ))
I have an obsession with sandwiches, I have always loved them so much for easy meals anytime of day! Meat and vegetables in bread, yes!
They do make for the easiest meals and super filling when you stuff a bunch of ingredients in there!

This looks delicious! Can you tell me which brand of bread you used? Thanks!
Any kind of bread works! If you’re gluten free I love the Schar bread, if not any sour dough will be great too!

I’ve never seen or thought about putting siracha on a sandwich. I read your recipe and immediately ran in my kitchen and made a turkey sandwich variation to yours, Delicious! Thank you!
Sriracha is so good on a sandwich : )) Glad you were inspired by my post!
