Inspired by the viral TikTok trend, we put our own spin on the grinder salad sandwich. We stick to one deli meat, in this case turkey, to cut back on sodium. For the salad topping, additions like bell pepper, red onion and tomato add color and crunch while also amping up the veggies. Whether you call it a grinder, hoagie or sub, you'll want to make this sandwich again and again.

  • Cut rolls in half horizontally. Place cut-side up on the prepared baking sheet. Divide turkey evenly among the roll bottoms; top with two half-pieces of cheese. Set aside.

  • Combine lettuce, bell peppers, tomato, onion and parsley in a medium bowl. Whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar and Italian seasoning in a small bowl until combined. Pour the dressing over the salad; toss to combine and let stand for 5 minutes.

  • Bake the sandwiches until the cheese is melted, the turkey is warmed and the bread tops are toasted, about 8 minutes.

  • Top each sandwich bottom with about 1 cup of the salad mixture. Place the tops of rolls on the sandwiches; cut in half crosswise. Serve immediately.
