Who doesn’t love a good sandwich? When there’s a crazy-good sauce all up in there, it’s the best lunch a girl could ask for. For the deli turkey and ham, opt for nitrate-free versions if you can. If you’re not feeling the Basil Mayo, you can replace it with ½ cup (120 ml) of Basil Vinaigrette & Marinade (here).
½ cup (105 g) mayonnaise
8 large fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ teaspoon finely ground sea salt
Pinch of ground black pepper
1 small head iceberg lettuce
4 slices deli turkey
4 slices deli ham
1 medium Hass avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced (about 4 oz/110 g of flesh)
- Place the ingredients for the basil mayo in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
- Cut the head of lettuce in half, then cut each half in half again so you have 4 wedges.
- Set a lettuce wedge on its side on a plate and layer on 2 slices of turkey, 2 slices of ham, and half of the avocado slices. Top with half of the basil mayo, then set a second lettuce wedge on top, placing it so that the thick edge of the top wedge is aligned with the thin edge of the bottom wedge. (This will give your sandwich an even thickness, making it much easier to eat!)
- Repeat with the remaining lettuce wedges, sandwich fixings, and basil mayo and enjoy.
