Turkey Sandwiches with Ginger-Avocado Relish

Makes 4 Servings

4 green onions
2 tbs Olive Oil
5 tsp Rice Vinegar
3.5 tsp fresh ginger (peeled & minced)
2 tsp Wasabi Paste
1 Avocado
1 to 2 lbs Turkey Breast Cutlets
Asia Sesame Oil
4 Thick Slices Country Bread
4 Large Butter Lettuce Leaves

1.In a bowl combine the green onions, olive oil, vinegar, 2 tsp of the minced ginger, and the wasabi. Gently mix in avocado slices. Season to taste with salt and pepper; and set aside.
2. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct heat cooking over high heat. Brush the turkey with sesame oil on both sides, and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the remaining 1 ½ tsps. Ginger over one side of the turkey. Brush sesame oil over one side of the bread. Grill the turkey until just cooked through, 2-3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate. Grill the bread, oiled side down, until golden brown, 2-3 minutes.
3. Arrange 1 bread slice, grilled side up, on each plate. Arrange sliced lettuce over each, and then top with turkey. Spoon the relish over and serve right away.

Quick Tip*
Turkey cutlets are terrific for weeknight dinners because they cook quickly and taste great but these sandwiches would also be delicious with grilled chicken breast or fish fillets. Grilling punches up the flavors of the poultry, but if you don’t feel like grilling, quickly sauté the turkey in a frying pan and toast the bread in a toaster. Look for wasabi paste in the Asian food section of the supermarket or in a specialty food store.
