Smoked Turkey, Cherry, and Feta Salad with Vinaigrette

This lovely salad has been brought to you by Market Street, and I am happy to give you my honest opinions about the entire delicious process.

It's almost time for fresh cherries to be arriving in grocery stores. Cherries are good in so many dishes, but one of my favorite ways to enjoy them is in this fresh, crunchy salad.

The sweet cherries, smoky turkey, and salty feta make a winning taste combination. You'll enjoy this salad with dried cherries, but you won't want to miss trying it with fresh cherries, too.



Smoked Turkey, Cherry, and Feta Salad with Vinaigrette


Ingredients for salad:
1 head romaine lettuce, medium chop
1 cup chopped smoked turkey
2/3 cup halved and pitted fresh cherries (may substitute 1/3 cup dried cherries)
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup sliced green onions

Ingredients for vinaigrette:
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

1. Combine all vinaigrette ingredients in a jar, cap tightly, and shake well. Refrigerate until needed.

2. Place lettuce in medium serving bowl. Layer evenly with turkey and onions, and then sprinkle evenly with feta and cherries. Serve with vinaigrette to pass. Serves 2 to 3 as main course or 4 to 5 as a side. Refrigerate leftovers.
Recipe adapted from the California Cherry Board




If you live (or visit) in the Dallas, TX, area, be sure to visit a Market Street and get beautiful fresh cherries while they're available. This premiere crop comes directly from the the orchards of Central Valley California, and the folks in the Market Street produce department will even let you sample a taste.
