I'm fairly new to the idea off adding fruit to sandwiches. I'm not sure why it's taken me this long to try it, the possibilities are endless and it's such a great way to add lots of flavors with a healthy twist. Not to mention, for my fellow Weight Watcher fans, fruit is now FREE so it's a 0 point addition!
My first stab at it was my Christmas Inspired Panini where I paired cherries and avocado with ham. This time I'm using my current favorite fruit of the season...
PEARS! They are everywhere and absolutely wonderful. Every year I forgot how much I like them until I take a bit into a ripe Anjou (the small green ones). Then I fall in love all over again.
They are gritty and sweet and juicy. Just amazing! Little Man loves them too so I buy a bag of assorted pears once a week and we enjoy trying them all.
Today I used a ripe Anjou to make the most amazing sandwich.
- 1 sandwich thin
- 1 wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss
- Half a cup of baby spinach leaves (15g)
- ½ of pear sliced
- 2 oz of deli turkey
- ½ tbsp low-sugar jelly
Here's all you need to make this tasty lunch...
Toast the thin if you prefer. I only do if mine aren't fresh.
Smear The Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge on the bottom half of the thin. Top with the spinach and pear.
I sliced mine from the bottom to make fun round slices but you can slice from the side.
Top the pear with your sliced turkey and smear the jelly on the top of the thin. Note: This could totally be replaced by some cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving time!!
slice for effect...
Pair with some carrots stick. Delicious!
