IngredientsCranberry-Dried Plum Relish:
72 oz fresh cranberries
36 oz pitted dried plums*
25 each orange, peeled and quartered
11 oz pecans
21 1/2 oz cup sugar
18 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tsp ground sage

DirectionsFor Cranberry-Dried Plum Relish:
In a food processor, process cranberries, dried plums, orange, pecans and sugar until coarsely chopped, pulsing on and off. In a bowl, mix together cream cheese and sage until blended.
To assemble sandwiches, spread cream cheese mixture evenly on four slices of bread. On each slice, layer 3 oz of turkey, 1/4 cup relish and 1 lettuce leaf over cheese mixture; close with second slice of bread. (Reserve remaining relish for later use; store, covered, in refrigerator for up to 1 week.)
Tip: -This refreshingly tangy relish can also be spooned over plain yogurt. Add a tablespoon of brandy and transform it into a dessert topping for vanilla ice cream or pound cake.
