Turkey Sub Recipe

Turkey Swiss Mega Sub with Ranch Aioli Recipe

Spring has been teasing us a little bit.  We’ve had a couple of warm days in Central Iowa, followed by some cold, windy and wet days.  Today is one of the latter types.  It’s discouraging, especially for our farmers who want to be planting, but I suppose it is to be expected.  As they say, “April showers bring May flowers!”

Today, I’m pretending it’s 70 degrees and sunny, like it was Friday and Saturday, and craving this turkey sandwich recipe from FunnyLove Blog.

Turkey Sub Recipe

 The ranch aioli and toasted ciabatta bun look amazing, don’t you think?  Not to mention the turkey and another favorite Iowa product, Hellman’s mayonnaise.
