Turkey Cranberry Pesto Sandwich

While my mom was visiting, I took advantage of the chance to do some blogging and tweeting (@savorthethyme) sans kids and went to the local Starbucks. While I as there, I decided to peruse the food selection and latched onto a Turkey Cranberry Pesto Sandwich. I consumed and knew I could make an even better version at home (sorry but my pesto kicks starbucks).

Once I arrived home, I made a lively pesto with the basil from a friends garden and used, well heck, I will share the pesto recipe in another post. To make the sandwich, here is what you need:

Sliced Turkey Meat (nitrate free deli slices)
Lettuce (farmer's market)
Dried Cranberries (Nature's Prmosie)
Pesto (homemade)
Fresh Bread

Assemble and consume.

I never would have put the combination together, but I wish I could have one for lunch now!

Looks tasty - I've seen the sandwiches in the fridge at Starbucks but figure they are known for their drinks and I'm not so sure the sandwiches are necessary to test...I tried one of their salads a while back (I think it might have been orzo or tortellini) it was ok but not a slam dunk.
