For the aioli:
1 cup homemade or jarred mayonnaise
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice plus 1 tsp. fresh lemon zest
1 small garlic clove, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the sandwich:
2 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
1 Tbs. olive oil
12 slices OMM Whole Wheat Bread, toasted
8 pieces Boston lettuce (half head)
¾ lb. sliced smoked turkey
8 slices bacon, cooked
1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced
1. To make the aioli, in a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the lemon juice and zest, garlic, and ½ tsp. each salt and pepper. Season with more lemon juice and salt to taste.
2. To marinate the tomatoes, sprinkle the slices with the thyme, ¾ tsp. salt, and the oil and let sit for 10 minutes.
3. To assemble, spread the mayo on one side of each slice of bread. Stack alternating layers of lettuce, tomato, turkey, bacon, bread and avocado. Secure the sandwiches with 2 toothpicks, slice in half, and serve.
