Turkey Sandwich with Kale, Beets and Black Olive Butter

Turkey Beet Recipe

The next time you roast beets for dinner, set a couple aside so you can make these colorful turkey sandwiches the next day. A lemony kale salad takes the place of the usual lettuce and a mash of black olives is an easy way to elevate a smear of butter.

Serves 2 | Total Time: Less Than 30 Mins


  • 2 large kale leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup kalamata olives, pitted and finely chopped
  • 4 slices country bread
  • 6 slices Applegate Naturals® Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
  • 2 small beets, roasted and sliced


  1. Remove the ribs from the kale leaves then thinly slice the leaves. Toss together the kale, olive oil and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let sit until kale is slightly wilted, about 15 minutes.
  2. Mash together the butter and olives until evenly combined. Spread the black olive butter on one side of each bread slice. Divide the turkey evenly over two of the slices of bread, top with the kale and the roasted beets. Top with the remaining bread slices, cut the sandwiches in half and serve.
