Easy healthy recipe: Butterball Turkey, Tomato & Cucumber Sandwich

easy-healthy-recipe-butterball-turkey-tomato-cucumber-sandwich As much as I love cooking and baking, I don’t like when the recipes take too long to prepare or clean! I would rather go on a ski trip (sometimes we go skiing at night: just amazing) or play a board game with my family! That’s why  I am always looking for quick,  easy healthy recipes so I can get extra family time! Think it is difficult! Think again! Remember, cooking is about being creative!

For today’s recipe I will be using  Turkey! Turkey is low fat, affordable and most of all delicious! My kids can eat 3 Turkey slices in a row without any bread! I sometimes have to hide it in my secret compartment in the fridge! (you know that compartment of veggies where kids do not look because it is full of tomatoes, I hide it there).

As a proud Butterball Ambassador, I will be featuring the Butterball Turkey Roast Smoked in a Turkey, Tomato & Cucumber Sandwich. Last time I used the Butterball Turkey breast in a delicious Turkey and Roasted Quesadillas

Butterball Turkey, Tomato & Cucumber Sandwich: an easy healthy recipe: ready in 15 minutes


This recipe is inspired from Butterball website!


  • 2 slices Black or pumpernickel rye bread!   I used white bread because this is what I head on hand for this easy recipe
  • 1/4 tsp (1mL) Safflower mayonnaise! I replaced it with mustard because my kids are not fan of mayonnaise
  • 1/8 tsp (1/2mL) Fresh lemon juice
  • 2oz (57g) Sliced leftover Butterball turkey breast! I went to my local butcher and I got this delicious Butterball smoked turkey roast!
  • 1 Ripe tomato thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Cucumber, thinly sliced
  • Black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (125mL) Alfalfa sprouts

How to prepare this easy healthy recipe

  • Mix mayonnaise (mustard in my case)  and lemon juice. Spread on bread. Layer each bread slice with turkey, tomato and cucumber. Sprinkle with black pepper. Top with sprouts.
  • Serve with fresh seasonal fruit. I served with baby carrots and blackberries.

How easy is that! Eating healthy doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive! Just be creative and you will have easy healthy recipes ready in less then 30 minutes!

    Your recipe is great and I love the use of cucumber and sprouts because I like to use them on my tacos along with tomatoes and shredded carrots, totally delicious

  2. Hi Olfa,

    We became vegetarians after my kids watched Food Inc. for a school project a few months back. Since then, I am constantly trying to replace our sandwich favorites with veggie versions. While your Turkey, Tomato, Cucumber Sandwich may have turkey in it.. it also looks like it would be fantastic forgoing the turkey! Thank you for the great inspiration.

    Have a wonderful weekend,
