Turkey Bacon Ciabatta

Looking for a fancy sandwich to impress all your friends? Or do you just want something delicious that you can pack for a picnic in these waning days of sunshine? Well here you go! My mom passed along this recipe that she got from a friend while volunteering to make lunches for the teachers at the high school. Apparently it was a hit school-wide.

You can make the sandwiches as written, or just make do with whatever rolls, Parmesan cheese, and greens you've got on hand. The dressing is really the key, in my humble opinion.

1/2 c mayo
1/2 bunch Italian Parsley
1 t Dijon mustard
1 1/2 T lemon juice
1 clove garlic

Mix all ingredients in a food processor or blender. Refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to mellow.

To assemble sandwiches:
6 ciabatta rolls
1 lb turkey deli meat
12 slices bacon, cooked
Parmesan cheese slices, shaved off a block with a vegetable peeler
baby arugula

Slice rolls. Spread both sides lightly with dressing. Layer turkey, bacon, Parmesan slices, and arugula in between ciabatta. Enjoy immediately or save in the fridge/cooler for up to 24 hours.
