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!
- ½ pound smoked turkey, cut into ¼” cubes
- ½ cup diced red bell pepper
- ½ cup blanched, chopped green beans
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons finely diced shallots or fresh Spring onions (more if you like raw onion)
- 2 teaspoons dried basil OR 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil (I didn’t have any on hand yet!)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise of choice (optional), you can make your own too!
- 1 tablespoon capers
- Place all the ingredients together in a bowl and toss.
- Serve with Belgian endive spears, Romain, butter lettuce, celery, or your favorite crackers.
