Goat Cheese, Cucumber and Turkey Sandwich

I had a bunch of mild ingredients in my fridge that needed to be got rid of. Leftover from the previous Saturday's market was half a small wheel of mild goat cheese. This particular local craft cheese has an almost bocconcini-like mildness but the softened texture and muted tang of goat cheese. It's very light tasting and was a natural match for peeled and thinly sliced cucumber along with sliced deli turkey. I added just a few little dollops of pesto on top of the turkey and sandwiched the whole in plain crusty white bread. Lightly toasted, this sandwich is very light and almost feminine in quality. Maybe I should slice the bread thinner and remove the crusts to make is even more gentle. Next time I guess.
