Turkey Chopped Salad

Turkey Chopped Salad Recipe

I love the dark meat turkey that my local natural grocery store cooks up. They have only a limited amount from the deli that they roast each day, and when it’s gone, it’s gone. So when I’m lucky enough to be there when they just put it out, I’m always grabbing it. It makes the most delicious tacos, and of course, protein for salads. I love dark meat because it’s a little more flavorful and moist as well as packs more healthy fat.

While this salad could be good with grilled or shredded chicken, I think the richness of the dark turkey meat really gives this salad some depth.



  • 2 cups Spring mix lettuce

  • 1/2 cup Grated carrots

  • 1/8 cup Chopped banana peppers

  • 4oz Dark meat roasted turkey breast

  • 1/8 cup almond slivers


  • 1 tbsp Red rice vinegar

  • 1/2 tbsp Olive oil

  • 1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar


  1. On a cutting board use a cheese grater and shred carrots. About 2 large carrots will make a half cup of shredding.

  2. Chop up the banana peppers and add that to the carrots.

  3. Put all the lettuce, carrots and banana peppers into a large bowl and mix.

  4. Mix together red rice vinegar, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar into the salad mix and gently toss.

  5. Top the salad with the shredded turkey meat and almond slivers.

  6. Enjoy!
