Open Turkey Sandwich with Spiced Cherry Sauce

Give an open turkey sandwich a special twist with Spiced Cherry sauce! Roast turkey is a great lean source of protein any time of year, but this recipe really comes in handy for Christmas leftovers.



In a small saucepan, sauté the onion in the olive oil until softened.

Add the brandy, vinegar, water, cinnamon and bay. Bring to the boil and add the cherry paste. Stir until the paste is dissolved.

Allow the sauce to simmer until slightly thickened (about 5 minutes). Remove cinnamon and bay and allow to cool.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Perfect as an accompaniment to leftover Christmas turkey!
