- Unlike many salad recipes, this recipe is heated. I agree it looks like a mess. While heated salad is “weird” at first, the flavor is truly worth a little experimentation.
- Turkey tends to be a rather flavorless meat. By using the slow cooker, you can infuse turkey with a great robust taste.
- Use romaine lettuce instead of iceberg lettuce. Iceberg lettuce is nutritionally “weak”. Conversely, romaine lettuce is packed with nutrients.
