Paleo Smoked Turkey & Crunchy Vegetable Salad

Smoked Turkey & Crunchy Vegetable Tapenade

Call it an appetizer  Call it an awesome dip or salad.  Call it whatever you want.  This recipe is so refreshing and perfect for a snack or a lunch.

Fresh vibrant vegetables set off by a bright lemon dressing.

This goes together quickly, and tastes even better if it has a bit to sit and marinate in the fridge.

I asked my deli for a 1/4″ thick slice of of natural (i.e. no fillers or gluten!) smoked turkey, this made cubing easy!Paleo Smoked Turkey & Crunchy Vegetable Tapenade

    After my first bite, I seriously wanted to dance a little jig. This recipe is so up my alley and I love how simple and healthy it is. The endive is really a yummy touch, btw. I liked it better than the rice crackers! I also used Applegate pre-sliced smoked turkey and that worked great too!
