ChezCindy: Roast Turkey Kale Caesar Sandwich

This sandwich came together with various odds and ends I had available.  It turned out so delicious, I had to take a picture of it.  I had beautiful whole grain bread from Beehive Bakery; baby kale from Bird Haven Farms; left-over roast  turkey breast and my homemade mayo.  I chopped the kale; massaged in some olive oil and kosher salt.  Added lemon juice and parmesan cheese for quick Caesar-style salad greens.  That alone is a good start to lunch.  A double layer of kale, plus roast turkey and mayo on toasted whole grain bread.  One word...YUM. 

List of ingredients and the process:
Whole grain bread
Roast turkey breast
Homemade mayonnaise*
Baby kale leaves
Olive oil
Lemon Juice
Kosher salt
Shredded Parmesan cheese

Chop the kale leaves into ribbons; massage a small amount of olive oil into the kale (roughly 1 teaspoon to 2 cups of kale) with a sprinkle of kosher salt.  Squeeze fresh lemon juice onto the kale (roughly 1/2 teaspoon per 2 cups of kale); sprinkle in the parmesan cheese.

Toast the bread.  Spread each slice with mayo.  Place a large handful of kale salad onto the first slice of toast.  Layer on slices of roast turkey.  Add a second handful of kale salad; top with the second slice of bread.  Enjoy.
