Smoky Turkey Cobb Salad
A subtly sweet maple vinaigrette, two kinds of smoky meat, and pan-seared cherry tomatoes lift this Cobb salad out of the ordinary.
Why This Recipe Works
To make use of leftover turkey this year, we chose a classic: Cobb salad. Our smoked turkey adds an edge to this traditional supper salad, and we decided to take it one step further, balancing the smoke and salt of the turkey and bacon with a tangy, sweet maple vinaigrette. Avocado and blue cheese are givens, but instead of out-of-season beefsteak tomatoes, we sauté sweet cherry tomatoes in the rendered bacon fat to add a cold-weather spin to this fresh dish.
