Hearty Avocado and Turkey Salad with Greek Dressing Recipe

Salads are easy and anyone can make them.  But, they can also be boring and leave you craving something more hearty.  Not this salad!  This Hearty Avocado and Turkey Salad with Greek Dressing Recipe skips the lettuce and gives you a protein-filled meal that will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

To up the “presentation quality” of this salad, we created it in short glasses. (You can also use small glass bowls.) The clear glass lets the pretty colors of the salad shine through and looks beautiful on a serving plate at a brunch or party. Stemless wine glasses work well and you can even find an unbreakable version here if you’re worried about one taking a tumble!

    Looks tasty! Yet I am not a beet person (YIKES, yes I know they are super healthy for you). You think it would be okay with black beans instead? I think this could be very versatile salad and maybe add some chipotle to the dressing?

    • I definitely think black beans would work! If you added chipotle I would leave out the basil, oregano and mustard.
