Oven Roasted Turkey Salad

As promised, a new salad each Monday this month in honor of #NationalSaladMonth. In case you missed the previous posts this month they were: Spring Salad II, Bacon Apple & Cheddar Salad, and Black & Blue Salad

Don't worry, just because May is nearing it's end, this doesn't mean the end of salad posts. Summer is just around the corner so I'm just getting started!

Chances are, if you cook a turkey you are bound to have leftovers. I roasted a small half turkey breast (which I'll be sharing the recipe for soon) and we ate off of it for days. But, it makes great leftovers and protein option for salads. Leftover chicken or pre-cooked turkey breast will work just as nicely.

This salad is pretty straight forward, but I decided to get a little fancy with a homemade Cranberry Vinaigrette. Hopefully my posts this month have inspired you to get creative and eat more salads.

I'm really excited about my photo background from Erickson Woodworks you see pictured. It was a "gift" (I picked it out and ordered it - haha) from my husband for our Anniversary. This is their Distressed White and the other side is Shabby Chic. It was so hard to make a selection - I seriously want one of everything!
