What is the perfect picnic food? Sandwiches! I grew up eating sandwiches on picnics whether we were at the beach, lake, or the middle of nowhere. They are easy to make, easy to transport, and easy to eat… because they don’t require utensils! I wrapped these Turkey on Ciabatta with Sun-dried Tomato Aioli, Arugula, and Provolone sandwiches in regular parchment paper and tied it up with baker’s twine…..
I may have mentioned in the past, that I do not like raw tomatoes. Well this Sun-dried Tomato Aioli is the perfect way to add a zesty tomato flavor to your sandwiches, without the mess of sliced tomatoes…..
And here is the actual sandwich…..
How to make Turkey on Ciabatta with Sun-dried Tomato Aioli:
I purchased a loaf of Ciabatta bread, but rolls would also work really well. I sliced the bread into approximately 2-inch slices…..
Then sliced them in half horizontally. Spread both sides of the bread with the Sun-dried Tomato Aioli…..
Add about 6 slices (or a handful) of sliced turkey…..
Top with a slice of provolone cheese…..
and a handful of arugula lettuce…..
Place the top slice of bread on the sandwich and serve…..
Yes, I made my sandwich upside down, but it was still quite delicious! 😉 While I was making the sandwich, it seemed like a huge amount of turkey. Now it all seems to have disappeared, lol.
