Bountiful Turkey Salad

Ingredients:

4 cups spring lettuce mix
4 cups roasted turkey, chopped
8 cherry or grape tomatoes
1 cucumber, sliced
1 cup dried cranberries, unsweetened
1/2 cup pecans, raw or roasted
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup pear mint vinaigrette dressing

 

Pear mint vinaigrette dressing:

1 cup pear juice, unsweetened
15 mint leaves
1/2 cup pecan oil or light olive oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil mayo

Directions:

In a large bowl, combine turkey, all vegetables, cranberries and pecans. Toss lightly and set aside.  In a blender or food processor, combine all salad dressing ingredients and process until smooth. Additional vinegar can be added to thin dressing until desired consistency is achieved. Pour 1/2 cup of dressing onto salad and toss to coat evenly. Serve immediately and enjoy! Remaining dressing can be stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
