I love making salads out of whatever random ingredients I have in the fridge. Sometimes I try to think of a theme or some kind of standard dish that I can re-mix into a salad. When I scoured the fridge today for lettuce-topping ingredients, I came out with what looked like the makings of a classic club sandwich. This salad was REALLY tasty. I’ll definitely make this again!
Turkey Club Salad
Yield: Approximately 1 servings.

2 slices of bacon
2 cups mixed baby lettuces
4oz Applegate Farms Organic Roasted Turkey (or fresh if you have it!)
1/4 of an avocado, cut into chunks
thinly sliced red onion – to taste
1 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Cook the bacon- I normally bake mine at 375 degrees in an oven on a rack over a cookie sheet for around 30 minutes, but for the purpose of a quick lunch, I cut and then pan fried these slices.
Layer the ingredients over salad greens and serve topped with the olive oil and lemon. Add sea salt and pepper to taste.

sport a “bacon is rad” T!
Try this salad with chicken or steak instead of turkey.
Add chopped or cherry tomatoes.
If you make your own homemade mayonnaise, create a creamy dressing to use over the salad with the mayo, some extra lemon juice and chives.
Enjoy & be well!
