A grilled turkey cutlet joins the classic combination of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil leaves. A toasted ciabatta roll makes the perfect platform.

Chicken and Marinated-Zucchini Sandwich

Cooked, shredded chicken (broil chicken cutlets or use leftovers) is mixed with the marinated zucchini, toasted almonds, and fresh parsley before being piled on Italian bread.
Our take on this down-home favorite combines chopped ham with reduced-fat cream cheese, mango chutney, and Dijon mustard. This is a great way to use leftover ham. Serve the ham salad on pumpernickel bread with a layer of thinly sliced cucumber.
