A homemade cheese spread with fresh herbs turns a sandwich of roast turkey on whole wheat into something special.


  • cup farmer cheese

  • 3 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt, preferably Greek

  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • ¾ teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh thyme

  • teaspoon coarse salt

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • 4 slices (½ inch thick) Whole-Grain Bread

  • ½ cup sprouts, such as clover and garbanzo

  • 5 ounces sliced roast turkey

  • ½ medium tomato, thickly sliced


  1. Stir cheese and yogurt in a small bowl until smooth. Stir in lemon juice and herbs. Season with salt and pepper; stir.

  2. Spread one side of each bread slice with cheese spread, dividing evenly. Divide sprouts, turkey, and tomato among 2 slices. Season with pepper. Top with remaining slices. Cut in half; serve.

Cook's Notes

Cheese spread can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 1 week.
