Thanksgiving Salad

Thanksgiving Salad

Introduction

Great salad even for summer, I call this "Thanksgiving" salad because all of the ingredients remind me of elements of a Thanksgiving dinner. Great salad even for summer, I call this "Thanksgiving" salad because all of the ingredients remind me of elements of a Thanksgiving dinner.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3/4 C red quinoa (measured dry), cooked
    1/2 lb turkey breast, roasted and diced
    1/2 C dried cranberries
    1 lb fresh green beans, rinsed, chopped in small pieces and lightly steamed
    8 green onions, sliced
    Sprinkle of chopped or sliced raw almonds (optional)

    Dressing:
    1/2 C fresh squeezed lemon juice
    1/4 C olive oil
    1/4 C balsalmic vinegar
    4 T honey

Directions

Directions assume you have the turkey roasted/diced already (or buy low salt from the deli counter and have them slice it thick for cubing).

Cook the quinoa, steam the beans and let both cool. Mix all the ingredients together (except dressing).

In a glass jar with a lid, mix dressing ingredients and shake well.

If you don't want to serve all at once, store salad and dressing separately and combine / toss as needed.

Serve over pieces of lettuce or spinach.
