This great protein has a special affinity for tart and fruity complements, which mostly makes people think about cranberries, of course. Cranberries are perfect with this tasty bird. But this time I wanted to do something different. So for this salad, I used pomegranate, both the seeds, (on the salad itself) and the juice (in the dressing).
Pomegranates compliment turkey in a freshly surprising and delicious way. With crisp fresh arugula, salty bacon, (yes, bacon, makes every dish better!) and toasted walnuts. And then,a slightly spiced honey lime pomegranate vinaigrette, this salad tastes fresh and delicious, looks pretty, and satisfies all the senses. It's kind of like a club sandwich without the bread, really. Except, with a whole lot more flavours going on.
You can make this salad with leftover turkey breast, or you can buy a fresh breast and roast it, or try it on the grill. Like this Cranberry Glazed Barbecued Turkey Breast , which is a perfect solution to a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner when you don't have a big crowd. Or if you only like the white meat. You can even buy pre cooked turkey breast pieces, too, in most grocery stores.
This delicious turkey breast salad makes a satisfying lunch or light dinner any time of the year.
