What happens when a turkey sandwich meets an avocado?
For me, turkey sandwiches and avocados are like a match made in heaven. Here is how my love for turkey avocado sandwiches has evolved. I used to lather tons of mayonnaise on my turkey sandwiches, but a few years ago I started replacing the mayo with ripe, creamy, healthy avocado slices. This way, the sandwich isn’t so dry, and the avocados taste really good on it!
Recently, I took it a step further after creating this avocado aioli recipe. Now I use it all the time on my turkey sandwiches since it is really fast and easy to make in a blender. Aioli is traditionally made with egg yolks, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. My avocado aioli is just how it sounds – a creamy spread made of avocados, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and plain Greek yogurt. The combination of these ingredients creates a flavorful, creamy dressing that goes great with turkey (and other) sandwiches.
Go ahead and try it, I know you are going to love the flavors going on here!
I created this recipe for the Magic Bullet Blog, check for it on there soon 🙂
The past few days have been rough because I haven’t been able to workout except for walking around the neighborhood with the stroller. Fabi has been working incredibly long hours at the office, and I haven’t been able to get myself over to the gym in the wee hours of the morning before he leaves. Remember I told you how bad I am at that? I am just not a morning person, what can I say. It also doesn’t help getting up a few times during the night with the little one. Tonight I can finally workout again since he will be home before dark, I can’t wait.
Also, did I tell you I got new cleats for my spin class? I was one of the only regulars who still didn’t have them. Now that I have been going so often, it made sense for me to finally get some – I think it will make it easier for me! I haven’t been able to use them yet, hopefully soon!
- 1 ripe avocado, pitted and chopped
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- ⅓ cup plain Greek-style yogurt
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- ¼ tsp salt
- Pinch of ground black pepper
- Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth and creamy.
I ate a chicken and avocado sandwich for lunch today. However I think it would have been better if I’d had your aioli in the sandwich instead of just avocado. I don’t have any cleats! Must fix that xx
This spread looks spectacular!! I am not a fan of mayo on my sandwiches and usually sub mayo for Greek yogurt in recipes, so this is so so so perfect for me 🙂
How long with this keep for? I don’t eat a lot of sandwiches but this sounds delicious
Hi Karrie! It is fresh for a few days in the refrigerator if you keep it in an airtight container. There are no preservatives, so not very long unfortunately…
