To my mind-set, leftover turkey is a present. The bones yield a tasty broth, and the meat may be included into an infinite number of scrumptious dishes. One among my favourite methods to take pleasure in boneless, skinless meat is to chop it into massive cube and use it in a Cobb Salad.
This 12 months I’m utilizing a Cobb Salad recipe from Natalie Thomson’s new cookbook, “The Grazing Desk” (Hamlyn). The salad is served with a perky sherry vinegar-based dressing on the aspect. The salad consists on a platter, every ingredient displayed in its personal particular person spot. Diners can construct their very own salad after which add dressing to go well with their desire. Thompson makes use of hen breasts in her recipe. I’ve taken the freedom of substituting turkey — white or darkish meat, or a few of each.
