There’s nothing tastier than a hearty, flavorful sandwich piled high with all of the fixings! For many of us, a sandwich was the first meal we learned to make for ourselves. I remember feeling super independent and accomplished when I learned to make my first PB&J sandwich! ?Those were good times for sure!
As I’ve gotten older, my taste buds have matured. Don’t get me wrong, PB& J will always have a special place in my heart, but this Mediterranean Turkey Cucumber Sandwich is slowly becoming my new favorite!
What I love most about this Mediterranean Turkey Cucumber Sandwich is that it’s packed with tons of fresh veggies, and piled high on my favorite Italian Five Grain Bread from the Publix bakery! To me, sandwiches are all about building flavors and textures, and while there are endless ways to build a tasty sandwich, I’m going to show you how to build a better sandwich with items that I purchased from Publix!
How to Build a Better Sandwich
The bread is possibly the most important component in making a wholesome sandwich. I like to choose breads that contain a great source of fiber and whole grains, such as this Italian Five Grain Bread from Publix bakery! I love browsing the bakery at Publix because they have the best selection of bread and other baked goods!

If you don’t want to print your coupons at home, just stop by the customer service kiosk typically located near the Publix entrance to pick up an Extra Savings flyer that includes the coupons.
When making this Mediterranean Turkey Cucumber Sandwich, I decided to toast my bread to provide me with a sturdier base.
When choosing your protein, be sure to think about the flavor that you want your sandwich to have. For example, chicken and turkey are great protein sources that are mild in flavor, and can be easily paired with a lot of bold ingredients.
My favorite protein of choice is Land O’ Frost Premium Sliced Turkey. Land O’ Frost Premium Sliced Turkey is a part of the Build a Better Sandwich Promotion at Publix! You can purchase any 16 oz Land O’ Frost Premium Sliced Meat of your choice for only $4.99.
This is my favorite part of the sandwich because it’s a chance to add on some crunchy textures, subtle flavors, and nutritious goodness!
For this Mediterranean Turkey Cucumber Sandwich, I used romaine lettuce, tomatoes, sliced purple onions, kalamata olives, and cucumbers. This combo of veggies provided my sandwich with a lot of bold, Mediterranean flavors.
The Condiments & The Extras
Now here comes the fun part! I love to choose a different selection of condiments and trimmings when making a sandwich.
For this Mediterranean Turkey Cucumber Sandwich, I used Maille Dijon Mustard and Borden Sharp Fat-Free Singles. Those flavors paired perfectly with the other ingredients and they are also a part of the Build a Better Sandwich promotion at Publix! You can purchase 2 Borden singles 8-12 oz of your choice for only $5. You can also save $1 off any Publix Bakery item ($1 or more in value) when you buy any 1 Cheez-it Snap’d 7.5 oz or 1 Maille Dijon or Old Style Mustard 7.3–8.11 oz. Among many other savings offers!
Now that your sandwich is complete, it’s time to pair it with the perfect side! I totally recommend Cheez-it Snap’d! They are such a fun snack and can add some excitement to any sandwich! Now tell me…what are some of your favorite sandwich pairings?? Let me know in the comments below!
