Sunset reader James C. Hayes of Ridgecrest, California, makes ordinary turkey sandwiches spectacular with fresh vegetables and buttery croissants. Leftover roast turkey has the most flavor, but you can use sliced deli meat instead.

  • 1/2 cup softened chive cream cheese
  • 1 large tomato, cut into 4 slices
  • 1/2 English cucumber, cut into long strips
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1 pound sliced roasted turkey or turkey deli meat
