This not so basic turkey sandwich recipe and blog post are sponsored by Foster Farms, learn more about Foster Farms and read on for this delicious recipe.
A few months ago I had the most amazing sandwich at a cute French Restaurant in Santa Monica. It was a turkey sandwich with a dill spread that was out of this world served with a cup of pho for dipping. My summer go-to herbs usually consist of basil and mint and this reminded me to pay attention to dill again. The sandwich was anything but basic and inspired the recipe for my own turkey sandwiches with vegetable pho.
Speaking of basic, Foster Farms is hosting a “Don’t Call Me Basic” Sandwich Contest to show that sandwiches made with its new line of Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey are anything by basic.

I love Foster Farms. As a California newbie, I was introduced to their chicken last month and made these Grilled Bruschetta Chicken Sandwiches. Foster Farms products are in abundance in our local grocery stores. Foster Farms All Natural Sliced Turkey is of course all natural with no chemicals or preservatives and is 98% fat free. It comes in Oven Roasted flavor or Honey Roasted & Smoked flavor.
My sandwiches feature Foster Farms All Natural Oven Roasted Sliced Turkey, fresh bakery bread, spring mix, thin sliced carrots, and provolone cheese topped with a fresh dill cream cheese. Serve this up with a side of vegetable pho with a hint of lime and you have a winning combination.
- Bakery rolls or bread, long buns work the best for dipping.
- 2 slices oven roasted turkey per sandwich
- 1 slice provolone cheese per sandwich
- A handful of spring mix
- Thinly sliced carrots (use a peeler to achieve long strips).
- 4 ounces plain cream cheese, softened
- 2 ½ tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
- 1 teaspoon water
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- The juice of half a lime
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce

- Prepare the vegetable pho and pre heat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Add vegetable broth, lime juice, soy sauce and scallions to a small pot and allow to simmer while you prep the sandwiches.
- Place the buns in the oven to toast them (optional but highly recommended).
- Add cream cheese, dill, water and oil to a small bowl and mix well, set aside.
