These good-for-you pita sandwiches get a kick of heat from a generous pinch of cayenne pepper used in the Fiery Almond sauce.
- 1 whole wheat pita bread, halved
- 2 leaf lettuce leaves
- 4 ounces thinly sliced roast deli turkey breast
- 1/4 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 6 thin cucumber slices
- 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
- 2 tablespoons Fiery Almond Sauce
- Fiery Almond Sauce
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
- Generous pinch of ground cayenne pepper
Line pita halves with lettuce leaves; fill with turkey, bell pepper, cucumber slices and almonds. Wrap the sandwiches in plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 8 hours. Store the sauce in a separate container and drizzle the sandwiches with sauce just before eating.
For the sauce, place the almond butter in small bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and stir until smooth, using a fork. Sauce can be stored in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 1 week. Makes 1/3 cup.
