Mealthy Tip

To make these sandwiches vegetarian, Simply omit the turkey. Extra pesto will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week, and it also freezes well. Make a double batch to have on hand for future lunches and dinners—toss it with pasta, put it on pizza, or spread on sandwiches!

This turkey, apple and cheddar sandwich was really delicious, especially with the spicy arugula on top. The walnut pesto was also very flavorful! This is perfect for a quick, light lunch.

I like to make these open faced turkey sandwiches after I workout. I use gluten free bread, no cheese, no apple. The pesto is so good!

For these sandwiches I just used a homemade basil pesto. I also used an arugula spring mix, so it had baby spinach in it too. The apple and cheddar pairing was delicious, great recipe.

Delicious sandwiches, made them vegetarian! The walnut pesto was really delicious, great texture and flavor. The spicy arugula with the sweet apples are such a winning combo too. Toasting the walnuts brought out a great flavor, such a smart move.
