Red Pepper Sandwiches

I stumbled upon this idea while blog-browsing and decided to try it out on a recent climbing trip to St. George. And they were sooo DELICIOUS! We had some leftover salad dressing in a leak-proof bottle and I think that really made the difference. We decided to make them open-faced sandwiches instead of close-faced, since it was too much red pepper otherwise. And obviously you aren't limited to these ingredients. Avocado, lettuce, or bacon would go really great on these, too! Original credit goes to The Primal Parent.

Makes 1 serving

1 red bell pepper
4 oz. sliced deli turkey breast
1 oz. thinly sliced raw, grass-fed cheese
1 TB salad dressing of your choice

Cut the bell pepper in half, remove the seeds, pith, and stem, and cut slits in the top and bottom to help make the bell pepper lay flat(ish).
Lay on several slices of the turkey breast, then drizzle the salad dressing on top (the turkey helps absorb the dressing better than the cheese so it's a little less messy than pouring it on top).
Top with several slices of cheese.

Lunch break at the Black Rocks in St. George!
