Wasa Crispbread with Tomato, Basil and Turkey
From Bob Greene's Best Life Diet

Oprah created this recipe for dieters looking for a little crunch.

1 Wasa cracker
Hellmann's Light Mayonnaise
1 slice lean turkey
1 slice tomato
1 leaf fresh basil
1 slice low-fat cheese

Take a Wasa cracker and spread some Hellmann's on the cracker. Then, place a slice of turkey on the cracker. Take a slice of tomato and some basil and place on the turkey. Fold the rest of the turkey slice over on top of the tomato. Place a slice of low-fat cheese on the top. Make another, and enjoy with soup for a healthy lunch!

Serves one.
