Healthy Recipe: Turkey Bacon Cobb Salad

This salad is a perfect way to use up any leftover turkey ​and​ get a good dose of hunger-busting protein at the same time. With a combination of shredded turkey, crisp turkey bacon, soft boiled eggs, and tons of herbs, this take on the classic cobb has similar qualities to a lyonnaise salad but packed with even more flavor. 

Feel free to use this salad as a fridge dump and add in any veggies that are hogging space in your produce drawer. However you choose to dress up this recipe, it will surely snag a top spot in your go-to recipe rotation!

INGREDIENTS:

For the dressing: 

1⁄2 cup olive oil

1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon dijon mustard 

1⁄2 finely chopped shallot, finely chopped 

1 teaspoon fresh thyme 

Salt and pepper

1⁄2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

For the salad:

3 eggs

4 strips (2 oz/60 g) turkey bacon (cooked)

1 cup (2½ oz/70 g) cooked and shredded turkey

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

2 tablespoons fresh dill

1 cup arugula (or other mixed greens) 

3 cups butter lettuce

1⁄4 cup crumbled blue cheese

1⁄2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

1⁄2 avocado, pitted, peeled, and cubed

1⁄2 shallot, thinly sliced

INSTRUCTIONS:

Cover eggs with water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling remove from heat and cover for 7 minutes. Place eggs in a bowl of ice and cold water and allow to cool. 

Add all ingredients for the dressing to a bowl, except for oil, and whisk together. Slowly drizzle in olive oil while whisking until combined.

Crumble bacon and add to a large serving bowl with shredded turkey, herbs, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, avocado, and shallot. Add the dressing, a few tablespoons at a time, and toss so all of the leaves are well dressed (Note: you will not use all of the dressing.)

Peel eggs and slice in quarters. Place them on top of dressed salad and serve. 

Makes 4 servings.
