Turkey & Blue Cheese Salad with Tarragon-Mustard Vinaigrette

Scott Phillips

Servings: four.

I like this with Belgian endive, but romaine hearts work, too.


For the salad:

  • 2 cups 1/2-inch diced cooked turkey (about 12 oz.)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery hearts, including leaves
  • 1/3 cup toasted sliced almonds
  • 1 sweet apple (like Mutsu or Fuji), cored and cut into
  • 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 oz. creamy blue cheese (try Roquefort or Maytag Blue), crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 large Belgian endive, separated into spears

For the vinaigrette:

  • 2 tsp. finely chopped fresh tarragon
  • 2 tsp. grainy Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbs. tarragon vinegar
  • 6 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt; more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • In a large bowl, toss the turkey, celery, almonds, and apple. Add the blue cheese. In another bowl, whisk the vinaigrette ingredients; taste and adjust the seasonings. Pour over the turkey mixture and toss well; taste and adjust the seasonings. Serve with the endive spears on the side.

    Delicious! One of our favorite ways to use leftover turkey. We add halved red grapes. Can also serve on romaine or iceberg lettuce as a tossed salad.
