Lunch in a Hurry: Mandarin-Almond Turkey Panini
I ran home for lunch today and made one of my favorite paninis. I have posted it in my blog before, but I thought it deserved a second go-around. It is so quick and easy to make that I just have to share (again).
To begin I spread Laughing Cow Light Swiss spreadable cheese on both sides of whole wheat bread. I then add enough mandarin slices to cover the bottom half and sprinkled some almond slices in the mix as well. I use Native Forest Canned Organic Mandarin Slices to save time.
I added about six slices of turkey and promptly placed the sandwich on the Griller, Jr. until lightly toasted.
The mandarins added a bit of a tangy twist and the almond crunch is a nice surprise with each bite. I partnered the sandwich with Kashi 7-Grain crackers, a light swiss wedge, and almonds. I love to spread the swiss on the crackers and top it off with an almond.
Not a bad way to spend lunch (and sneak a little Vitamin C into your sandwich)!
