    Cook's tips

    Sandwiches are best eaten straight away, but if you're making this for later, cover with clingfilm and chill, then add the tomato just before eating.


    For a different flavour, use German Landbrot Light Rye Bread. Fill with turkey, roasted red onion, chopped fresh thyme and lamb's lettuce.

    Or you could try Waitrose White Batch with Poppy Seeds. Fill with turkey, Waitrose Spiced Peach Chutney and a handful of rocket leaves.
