Turkey, Cilantro, & Avocado Roll-Up with a Lime Mayonnaise Sauce

I have always disliked lunch meat. Even though the other day I had some with tomatoes and avocado (two things I love), I still just didn’t care for it. To me, there is hardly any doctoring up you can possibly do to make a lunch meat sandwich (in this case, roll-up) really tasty. Well, I guess I was determined to prove myself wrong today. 🙂

Lunch meat can be such an easy thing for lunches…I grasp that reality. That’s why we have some in our own house. And I get that it is not always doable to make an extravagant meal for lunchtime. Thus, began my experimentation with lunch meat today. I thought, “Why not heat it up and add some fresh ingredients and spices?!”

Hubby and I both loved the way this tasted! I wasn’t sure how the sauce would work out…I just kept adding different things to it until I liked the taste. My goal was for it to have sort of a southwestern feel, to go with the turkey, cilantro, onions, and avocado. It was tangy and went delicious with the flavors in the roll-up!

(Note: If you wanted to use all fresh ingredients, I can imagine this recipe would work great with fresh chicken or turkey breast.)

Here is a picture of the goodies and the sauce before I rolled up the tortilla…
