“A special sandwich for the lunchbox combines light turkey breast, creamy Havarti cheese, and the sweet crunch of thinly-sliced apple.”


    • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • ½ teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
    • Dash black pepper
    • ¼ cup fresh baby spinach
    • ⅓ cup thinly sliced apple
    • 2 ounces roasted turkey breast, thinly sliced (see Tip)
    • 1¾-ounce slice Havarti cheese
    • 2 slices reduced-calorie whole wheat bread


  • 1 For dressing, in a small screw-top jar combine vinegar, oil, mustard, and pepper; cover and shake well. Divide between two small storage containers; cover and chill overnight.
  • 2 For sandwich, layer spinach, apple, turkey, and cheese between bread slices. Wrap in plastic wrap or place in a sandwich container; cover and chill overnight.
  • 3 To tote, pack one dressing container and the sandwich in an insulated bag with ice packs. (Reserve remaining dressing for another sandwich or a tossed green salad.) To serve, drizzle dressing over sandwich filling.
  • Tip: To roast turkey, preheat oven to 400°F. In a 10-inch oven-going skillet, heat 2 teaspoons canola oil over medium-high. Add one 1-pound turkey breast tenderloin; cook 3 minutes on one side or until golden. Turn turkey; transfer skillet to oven. Roast 15 to 20 minutes or until turkey is done (165°F). Transfer to a cutting board; cover with foil and let rest 10 minutes before slicing.
