Crunchy Melon and Smoked Turkey Salad|
This salad is filled with wonderful flavors and textures. We especially like it on focaccia, but it is excellent on any bread for simple sandwiches or served as a salad on lettuce leaves. Smoked ham or chicken can be used in place of the turkey if desired.
2 cups cubed honeydew
2 cups cubed smoked turkey
Juice and zest of one lime
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup chopped celery
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon sugar
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped toasted almonds
Mix together all of the ingredients except for the almonds in a medium bowl. Serve immediately or chill up to four hours before serving. Add the almonds just before serving.
Makes 6 servings.
