This recipe is my version of turkey salad, with some avocado thrown in. In some parts of the empire, it is still very hot weather-wise. Thus, salads are still a viable option. This is a salad you can prepare in no time. With some crusty bread and a light, chilled wine, be it white or red, you have yourself a top of the line summer meal.



7 oz. package turkey breast (smoked or roasted), cut into bite-sized pieces
Half an onion, peeled and chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
1 oz. fresh mozzarella, cut into bite-sized pieces
½ cup black olives, rinsed and sliced
1 avocado, peeled and cut into chunks
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried oregano


  1. Layer turkey, onion, tomato  mozzarella, olives and avocado in a serving dish or platter.
  2.  Mix lemon juice and olive oil in a small cup and drizzle  over salad. Season with salt, pepper and oregano, and serve.
    Yield: 4 servings.
