Roast Turkey Cobb Salad


Roast Turkey Cobb Salad

What's Thanksgiving without leftovers? After spending multiple days cooking my family a wonderful Thanksgiving meal, I usually cannot stand the sight of our leftovers....unless I repurpose them into totally different, yummy meals. Here's a super easy go-to for that turkey. (And while the recipe may not call for it, don't hesitate for a second to slide all these fixin' in between some bread and make a sandwich! Slather your dressing on both bread slices and go.to.town)!

Ingredients:

Salad

  • 1 cup roast turkey breast (or dark meat), pulled or chopped into bite-size pieces

  • 2 strips of cooked bacon, roughly diced

  • 1-2 hard boiled egg(s), quartered

  • 1 tomato on the vine, diced or several cherry/grape tomatoes, halved

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons blue cheese, crumbled

  • 1/2 avocado, cubed (also ok to thinly slice the long way)

  • 2–3 cups of lettuce (I like butter or bibb lettuce)

Dressing

  • ¼ cup cranberry sauce

  • 1–2 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt‍

Directions:

  1. Combine all salad ingredients in a serving bowl.

  2. Whisk together dressing ingredients until emulsified.

  3. Top salad with dressing, or serve dressing on the side.

  4. If topping salad with dressing, mix well.

  5. Serve!
