Cucumber Turkey Sandwich

I adore cucumber sandwiches with dill dressings but today I also needed some more protein and being lazy and not wanting to cook up some chicken I decided a turkey sandwich was in order. Fresh dill was on sale at the store so here is what I came up with.

For 1 Sandwich

2 Slices of toasted bread
1/4 english cucumber, sliced thinly using a knife or mandolin
2 heaping tbsp Creamy Dill Spread (below)
3 oz turkey lunchmeat
2 slices of mild white cheese (havarti would be excellent!)

slather both pieces of bread with a heaping tbsp of the spread and place a single layer of cucumber on top of the spread. Place turkey on sandwich close up and enjoy!

You could also add some feta cheese to the spread or add some cheese to the sandwich.
The layering of the sandwich is-

Bread
Spread
Cucumber
Cheese (optional)
Turkey
Cheese (optional)
Cucumber
Spread
Bread

Creamy Dill Spread

1 handful fresh dill, chopped (if using dried stick with 1 tbsp)
1/2 handful fresh parsley (if using dry stick with 1/2-3/4 tbsp)
1 green onion, greens chopped only (no fresh, use a tsp of dried chives)
1/2 cup sour cream (or greek yogurt)
1/4 cup cream cheese softened
1 clove garlic grated into a paste over bowl
1/4 small onion grated into the bowl
2 tbsp parmesean cheese (I used fresh grated)
1 tsp lemon zest
*1 tsp lemon juice (see below)
feta cheese (optional)
salt
pepper
nutmeg

mix the sour cream and cream cheese together until combined
add in chopped herbs and grated veggies
stir in lemon juice, zest and cheese
season with salt and pepper along with just a hint of nutmeg

*use just a little lemon juice as it will thin out the spread a lot, start with a few drops and add up to 1 tsp. you also don’t have to use any at all if you would rather not.
