When the temps go up outside, who really wants to turn on a hot stove? A perfect lunch or dinner for summer or really any time of year, this turkey and apple sandwich is easy to make. The apples give the sandwich a sweet, cool, crunch, perfect on a warm day, while the onions give it a kick of flavor, crisp lettuce bulks it up, and mustard compliments the meat and cheese.
It’s also healthy, at just 6 Weight Watchers PointsPlus (turkey 1, cheese 3, bread 2). For a variation on the sandwich, add crispy bacon strips to add even more smokey flavor and texture. You could even omit the lettuce and make a melt in the toaster oven or toss it in your panini press for a cheesy, gooey, warm treat.
