Easy Meal Idea: Salad and Sandwich Using Hormel Natural Choice Sandwich Meat

Ok, this isn’t a typical recipe post. I think we all know how to make a salad and a sandwich. But did you know that Hormel offers some delicious varieties of pre-packaged sandwich meat? We didn’t either, and when we received a few packages this month as part of the Hormel Family Blogger program, we were interested in trying them out.

Hormel Natural Choice Turkey-1

Did you know that the Hormel® Natural Choice® line is the first nationally distributed line of all natural sandwich meats with zero preservatives and no artificial colors or flavors?

This is because all of our meats are preserved using High Pressure Processing (HPP), a cutting-edge, USDA-approved, all-natural process that doesn’t require preservatives. Instead, intense cold water pressure protects food against bacteria, while maintaining freshness and enhancing flavor.

Our Deli Sandwich Meats are also low in fat and trans fat free, with no added nitrites or nitrates and no MSG. These meats are also gluten free.

And since they’re all natural, they taste just like your holiday ham or Thanksgiving turkey.

Hormel Natural Choice Turkey-2

We enjoyed a salad and sandwich for dinner the other night. We needed a quick and easy weeknight meal that was still pretty healthy. After all, we’ve been trying to eat better and be more active (not only for overall health, but also because we have a cruise coming up!). We grabbed our Hormel Natural Choice Turkey and all the other fixins and were sitting down to eat within just a few minutes.

Hormel Natural Choice Turkey-3

We like to keep it pretty simple – The salad was made of green leaf lettuce, tomato, cucumber, craisins, feta cheese and croutons. We used just meat, cheese, mayo, mustard, green leaf lettuce, cucumber and tomato on the sandwich (I would like onion too, but Brett hates them enough that you will hardly ever find an onion in our house).

Hormel Natural Choice Turkey-4

Hormel Natural Choice lunch meat comes in 12 varieties! We really enjoyed the turkey varieties, especially the Cracked Black Pepper and Honey flavors, and Trent even tried ham for the first time and enjoyed it.

Another great thing about Hormel lunch meat is that it is readily available in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store….so no standing in the deli line!
