Dried fruit, almonds, and a touch of ginger make these 10-minute sandwiches deliciously different. Serve with baked chips for a superfast supper.
  • ¼ cup slivered almonds (about 1 ounce)
  • ¼ cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ¾ cup thinly sliced celery
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup dried cherries
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • 8 ounces roasted turkey breast, chopped
  • 4 (6-inch) whole wheat pitas, cut in half

  1. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds; cook 2 minutes or until toasted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; set aside.
  2. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, ginger, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add almonds, celery, and next 4 ingredients (through turkey), stirring well to combine. Spoon ⅓ cup turkey mixture into each pita half.
