Yield:

Preparation Time:

It's like a turkey club sandwich but in a bowl!

Ingredients:

  1. Dressing:
  2. 2 cups fat free plain yogurt (divided)
  3. 4 large basil leaves
  4. 1/4 cup fresh parsley, stems removed
  5. 2 Tablespoons chopped chives
  6. 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  7. 1 teaspoon honey
  8. 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  9. 2 Tablespoons fat free mayonnaise
  10. 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  11. 1/4 teaspoon additional pepper (if desired)
  12. Salad:
  13. 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce (1 small head)
  14. 1/2 cup halved grape or cherry tomatoes
  15. 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  16. 1 cup diced cucumber
  17. 2 slices cooked turkey breast, cut into strips
  18. 2 Tablespoon bacon bits
  19. 1 hard boiled egg, chopped
  20. 1 1/2 cups shredded Colby or Colby Jack cheese
Directions:

Dressing:
Place 1 cup of yogurt, basil, parsley, chives, lemon juice, honey and pepper in a blender or food processor. Cover and pulse until smooth (dressing will be green in color).

Pour yogurt mixture into a medium bowl; stir in remaining yogurt, mayonnaise and salt and additional pepper, if desired until just blended; refrigerate until ready to serve.

Salad:
Place lettuce at the bottom of a bowl and sprinkle the tomatoes, onion, cucumber, turkey, bacon bits, egg and Colby cheese on top.

Just before serving, pour dressing over salad and toss lightly.

Note:
Dressing may be prepared up to 2 days ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
