Recipe – Paleo Turkey Pear Salad

This is my new favorite Paleo recipe.  It is SO good.  I modified it from a recipe I had at a restaurant.  It has balsamic vinegar in it, which I shouldn’t eat as it make me itch.  UGH, but it’s so good!  And I’m trying to get off nuts.  Eggs have been out for a couple of months, but the nuts have not been <sigh>.

It’s that time of year when frozen turkeys have become widely available for the holiday season.  This usually lasts from some time in October to January, possible even March, depending on the store.  On sale, frozen turkeys are a pretty cheap source of protein, and we make about one per week during this time of year.  That means that by spring, we’re pretty sick of turkey.  I’m always looking for new turkey recipes!

Recipe -Paleo Turkey Pear Salad

You’re gonna LOVE my measurements!

  • Handful of bag o salad (I use a 50/50 spring and spinach mix usually)
  • Small handful of leftover baked and shredded turkey
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 red pear, sliced
  • A few whole pecans (10 maybe)
  • Some dried cranberries (20-25 maybe)
  • A small sprinkle of balsamic vinegar

Dump it all in a big bowl (yes, I’m eating it out of a serving bowl), mix, and eat.

I’ve also added thinly sliced red onion, but the last time, I got an unusually strong onion, and it was so awful that I haven’t used it since.  It still might be good, if not so strong.
