15 days of sandwiches: Day 3 – Turkey and havarti with homemade ranch

Today my sister is leaving to go to medical school. I am so happy for her, but at the same time I am really sad that she is going to be moving. I have had so much fun back at our parent’s house with her this summer and it’s going to be strange to be here without her now. My brother is also leaving to start his sophomore year at college this weekend, so needless to say, my house is going to feel pretty empty.

The drive to Jen’s school in Atlanta is about 10 hours. Luckily my dad is driving up there with her, but they will definitely be needing lot’s of snacks to help them through the long drive. I figured since I am doing the 15 days of sandwiches I would make them some really yummy sandwiches to take with them. This one is so good. The homemade ranch really makes such a difference and makes this sandwich really special.

Makes 2 sandwiches

2 6 inch sub rolls (I used a ciabatta but any bread will do)
6 Slices turkey
2 slices havarti cheese
1 tomato, sliced
4 leaves of Bibb lettuce
2 Tbls ranch dressing (recipe below)

Slice your bread in half lengthwise and spread dressing down on one side. Layer with 3 slices of turkey, 2 slices of tomato, 1 slice of cheese and 1 tablespoon of dressing.


Ranch dressing

1 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
2 Tbls dill, chopped
2 Tbls chives, chopped
Zest and juice from one lemon

Combine all ingredients into a bowl. If your dressing seems to be a little thick, you can add some buttermilk or cream to thin in out. I omitted this because I like the consistency to be a little thicker for sandwiches.

Bye Jen and Pete!!!! Going to miss you both so much, but I know we will have lot’s of fun when we are back together!!
