Turkey, Bacon, Avocado, and Cherry Tomato Salad on Whole Wheat

The classic club-sandwich combo of roasted turkey, smoky bacon, creamy avocado, and sweet, juicy tomato is even better when you toss it with a creamy lime dressing. Prep and Cook Time: about 2 1/2 hours. Notes: Using good store-bought roasted turkey, if you can find it, cuts out 1 1/2 hours of cooking time.

Yield: Makes 8 to 10 half-sandwiches or 4 or 5 whole sandwiches

  • 1 bone-in half turkey breast (about 2 lbs.; see Notes)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chives
  • 2 avocados, cut into 1/2-in. dice (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut into 1/2-in. dice
  • 6 thick slices crisply cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 8 to 10 slices hearty whole-grain wheat bread


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Put turkey breast in a 9- by 13-in. roasting pan and rub with olive oil. Sprinkle all over with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper and rub in evenly. Roast turkey until the thickest part of the breast reaches 160°, about 70 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit until cool enough to handle, about 20 minutes. Remove and discard skin, then cut meat into 1/2-in. dice (you will have about 3 cups turkey).
  2. 2. Meanwhile, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, lime zest, lime juice, chives, and remaining salt and pepper.
  3. 3. Put turkey, avocados, cherry tomatoes, and bacon in a large bowl; stir gently to combine. Add lime-mayonnaise dressing and stir to evenly coat filling.
  4. 4. Spoon sandwich filling onto 4 or 5 slices of bread and top with remaining slices. Cut each in half and serve.
