This is from the June '07 GoodHousekeeping magazine. Simple, healthy, and delicious. I added some alfalfa sprouts to mine and only used half the amount of spinach leaves.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 teaspoon lemon peel, grated
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves, loosely packed
  • 2 ounces cooked turkey breast, sliced
  • 1 small tomatoes, sliced


  1. Stir lemon peel into mayonaisse. Spread on both slices of bread.
  2. Layer half of spinach leaves, turkey, tomato slices, and remaining spinach leaves on one slice of bread.
  3. Top with second slice of bread.

This was so fresh tasting and yummy! The lemon really brightened the sandwich up and made it taste like something out of a fancy deli. :) Loved it! Looking forward to eating these for lunch this week - this is a keeper for sure! Thanks for sharing.

Nice combination of flavors. Next time I might increase the mayo a bit, and I like things swimming in sauce. I imagine that this would be even better on toasted Asiago Cheese Bread with garden fresh tomato and perhaps a slice of provolone. Yum! Thanks for posting.

A lovely healthy sandwich & tasty too. I used a dash of lemon dill sauce with the mayo instead of peel & it worked great, never would have though of using turkey & lemon together but it works, thanks!
