  • ¼ cup refrigerated pesto
  • 8 slices multigrain bread
  • 12 ounces sliced roasted skinless turkey breast or lower-sodium deli turkey
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, torn into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

    Step 1

    Spread 1/2 tablespoon pesto on 1 side of each slice of bread. Top 4 of the slices evenly with turkey and cheese. Top with remaining bread slices, pesto-side down. Brush the outer sides of the sandwiches evenly with oil.
