• 2 slices multi-grain or rye sandwich bread
  • 2 tsp Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 slices (1 oz. each) reduced-sodium cooked or smoked turkey
  • 1 USA pear, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded lowfat mozzarella cheese
  • Coarsely ground pepper

Directions:

1. Spread each slice of bread with 1 teaspoon mustard. Place one slice turkey on each slice of bread. Arrange pear slices on turkey and sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheese. Sprinkle with pepper.

2. Broil, 4 to 6 inches from heat, 2 to 3 minutes or until turkey and pears are warm and cheese melts. Cut each sandwich in half and serve open face.

Tips:

Some deli meats are loaded with salt, so shop carefully. When shopping for lean deli meats, look for products that are reduced sodium or low sodium. Be sure to balance a dish that contains higher amounts of sodium with accompaniments that are salt-free. Turn this sandwich into a DASH meal with a bunch of fresh grapes, cucumber slices, and fresh snap peas.
