Who doesn’t like a Turkey Club Sandwich? I sure do, but they can be rather heavy both in calories and carbs which I am trying to watch. This salad has all the fixing of a Turkey Club but is somewhat lighter. Springtime signals the start of salad season and since Sparky is growing tons of salad greens in the greenhouse, I decided to turn a favorite sandwich into a salad! Topped with my creamy Garlic Dijon dressing, it was so delectable that I am making another one tomorrow! I buy one pound whole turkey tenderloins and usually roast the whole thing but today, being in a hurry, I thinly sliced half of it and stir fried the turkey in a wee bit of the bacon grease. You know what they say, “everything is better with bacon” and it’s true. The bacon fat gives the turkey an extra boost of flavor. The creamy Garlic Dijon dressing is something I came up with on the spur of the moment. I couldn’t just top the salad with plain mayonnaise and the Dijon mustard with fresh garlic gives the dressing some extra pizzazz. Ready? Let’s go build a Turkey Club Salad!
Here’s what we’ll need.
