Turkey and Apple Salad over Watercress

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

For your next protein fix! A good Vitamin C boost, too! The dried fruit and almonds are my addition. I used a variety of locally grown apples in this salad. From a copy of Good Food magazine February 1988. Update 28 May 2009: Since posting this recipe, I have reduced the oil by half.

A pleasant summer-time salad - I enjoyed the tart dried cherries with the turkey and apples and it combined well with the lime dressing; however, I felt the dressing had too much oil and I had already cut the amount in half! I did enjoy the fresh lime juice. I used the optional sliced almonds and agree that they should be optional as they didn't lend themselves to the salad much. All in all, made a refreshing salad for our lunch today with ingredients I always have around! Made for My 3-Chefs.
