For this salad you will need to buy one or two large pieces (not sliced) of smoked turkey from the deli so you can cut it into cubes. Smoked turkey can be quite high in sodium, so if you are concerned about your salt intake, use regular roast turkey (or even crabmeat) instead.


  • 5 medium tomato(es), plum
    1 1/4 pounds
  • 2 tablespoon lime(s)
  • 2 tablespoon oil, olive, extra-virgin
  • salt
    to taste
  • 8 cup(s) lettuce, romaine
    thinly sliced crosswise
  • 3/4 pounds turkey, deli-style, reduced sodium
    cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4 ounce(s) cheese, mozzarella, part-skim
    cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 medium avocado


  • 1

    Cut two of the plum tomatoes into thin wedges and set aside. Quarter the remaining 3 tomatoes and place in a food processor along with the lime juice and oil. Process to a smooth purée. Season with salt to taste.

    Divide the lettuce among 4 plates. For each salad, drizzle the lettuce with 1 tablespoon dressing and top with one-fourth each of the turkey, mozzarella, avocado, and tomato wedges. Drizzle each salad with 1 tablespoon dressing and serve.
