As the hot weather comes upon us, it is sometimes nice to have something light and cool to eat. I think that salads are best to eat in the summer months. This is a pretty standard recipe for a turkey chef’s salad that is easy to prepare and very healthy for you. I know that I will be giving it a try. You should try it too. Enjoy!
What you will need:
1 1/2 lb mixed salad greens
1 cup fresh basil leaves torn into pieces
3/4 lb sliced turkey breast
1 small jar of prepared roasted peppers (about 7 oz)
4 oz Kalamata olives
1 1/2 basket cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1 medium avocado, cut into cubes
*optional 4 oz goat cheese
2 TBS balsamic vinegar
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
How to make it:
Rinse and dry salad greens. Drying is best done in a salad spinner.
Divide the greens and rest of ingredients equally on 4 plates.
Top with goat cheese, if desired.
Whisk together vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper and drizzle on top of salad.
