Pickle sandwich with deli turkey and mustard mayo

Does the thought of no bread for a sandwich leave you in a pickle? No problem! Make a pickle-wich. This quick and tasty sandwich is back on the low-carb menu when you use a crispy dill pickle as a bun. We like ours topped with a mayo and mustard blend with a traditional combo of turkey and cheese.

Instructions

  1. Slice each pickle in half lengthwise. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and to create a little "tub" for the filling.
  2. Mix the mayonnaise and mustard. Spread the mixture on the bottom "bun" of the pickles.
  3. Top with deli turkey, tomato, lettuce, red onion, and cheese. Top with the other pickle "bun" and secure the sandwich with a toothpick.

Tip

If your pickle is too thick, you can slice it into four layers to create two pickle sandwiches.

Be sure to use a dill or other savory pickle and avoid sweet pickles such as bread and butter pickles.

Be creative with your fillings! You could also use roast beef and cheddar, ham and havarti or any of your favorite lunch combinations.
