Turkey and brie sandwich

Pair With: Turkey and Brie

Try it: “Pears are the perfect sandwich fruit because they add sweetness and crunch without overpowering other flavors,” Newgent says. Place half a small, sliced pear into a turkey sandwich with mustard and Brie on hearty whole-grain bread (shown here). Or sauté pears to heighten their flavor even more, toss with feta cheese and lemon vinaigrette, and serve in a whole-grain pita.
