Am. STUFFED! Ohhhhhh. I have entered more food comas than were thought to be humanly possible in the last 48 hours. And each and everyone one them was glorious! Sooo much turkey. And now it’s time to tackle the leftovers. Oh the leftovers.
Some people hate leftovers I rarely have them thanks to Logan, so when I do it’s pretty freaking exciting. Hey it’s the small things. But having leftover turkey has never been one of my favorite leftovers to have around. Turkey on it’s own is pretty simple kind of chicken. So it makes a great canvas but is pretty boring on it’s own.
This Green Goddess Dressing is going to change the game though. It’s going to make you cover and smother anything and every thing with it’s goodness. And it’s PERFECT for turkey. But instead of just slathering it on a hunk of bird let’s add some greens and delicious multi-grain bread. Yaaaa. Let’s do this sandwich style.
Green goddess dressing is typically a slightly tangy, creamy, herby dressing or dip. It’s simple but packed full of flavor!
So take this amazing dressing some delicious leftover roasted turkey, top it off with sprouts, spinach, avocado, brie and two quality pieces of bread and you are about to nom on a Green Goddess Turkey Sandwich. Oooooooo. Mmmmmm.
If I could only eat one sandwich for the rest of time without hesitation I would pick this.
This sandwich is an all-star! Plus it’s packed with delicious greens or as Chewy says GWREEENZ! You could also pack on some extra greens like cucumbers or green heirloom tomatoes to start, nom nom nom.
After a heavy Thanksgiving meal this is a great way to use extra roasted turkey in a lighter way that’s a feel good meal. I opted for an awesome fiber packed flax multi-grain bread for my slices. Go for quality on this one. You deserve it. You made it through Thanksgiving and came out the other side.
And since survival may have been rough, whether due to making the meal yourself or devouring the entire meal yourself… it’s time to just lay back and make use of those leftovers. And what better way to put that leftover bird to work than with an easy peasy meal: a sandwich.
