Chilli Turkey Ciabatta

We've had a few nice days recently so I hope I'm not tempting fate here by saying 'I wonder if Summer is finally on the way'....


I'm hoping that this year we manage a bit more Al Fresco dining that we did last year, although to be honest I think we've managed that already. We have new garden furniture and a parasol that I hope will get plenty of use keeping the sun off us rather than the rain.



I also hope (I'm doing a lot of hoping here) that we get to have some days out with a picnic. We may be just about the furthest from the beach that you can possibly be in this country but at least that means we won't be eating sand sandwiches. Picnics don't have to be boring and this turkey ciabatta sandwich was rustled up in 20 minutes and can be eaten hot or cold.

  • In the meantime mix the mayonnaise and lemon juice together & set aside
  • Halve the ciabattas and once the turkey is cooked lay the bread cut side down on the griddle pan to toast for a minute
  • Spread the toasted sides of the ciabatta with the lemon mayonnaise
