Cape Cod Picnic Salad
From Cook's Country
This Cape Cod Picnic Salad recipe takes its inspiration from the fall flavors of New England. The inclusion of turkey breast, cheddar cheese, and walnuts makes this a complete meal. Cranberry or apricot chutney was the secret ingredient that lent mystery to the vinaigrette and tied all the other ingredients together. Dijon mustard and lime juice rounded out the vinaigrette. Tossing the apple slices with acidic lime juice prevented them from oxidizing and turning brown. Blending two types of greens—crisp romaine and mustardy watercress—lent flavor and textural depth to this chicken salad recipe.
Serves 8 to 10
Lisa's secret ingredient is cranberry chutney, but we found that apricot preserves will work, too. Make sure to ask for a single piece of unsliced turkey breast at the deli counter.
