In winter, I crave different flavors than in the warmer months. During spring and summer, I’m all about berries and melons. In fall and winter, I turn to crisp apples, cranberries, honey and maple flavors. I thought to myself, “why not mix all of these great flavors in one salad?” The folks at McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli asked me to check out their products at my local Shaw’s Supermarket. I came up with this salad inspired by their Honey Maple Turkey.
This is a super easy recipe that I can make and enjoy during some quiet time while the kids are at school.
Dried Cranberry & Honey Maple Turkey Salad
- 2-3 cups Organic Mixed Greens
- 2-3 tablespoons dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup Macintosh apple chopped
- 1/4 cup golden cherry tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
- 3 slices of McKenzie Honey Maple Turkey
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinaigrette
I appreciate that the McKenzie brand prides itself on using the highest quality ingredients. The company’s products are naturally crafted in small batches from real ingredients like whole-muscle meat, raw milk and pure Vermont maple syrup. The natural artisan hams, turkey breast, chicken breast and cheeses are:
• 100% all natural
• Antibiotic & growth hormone free
• Made with no nitrates or nitrites added
• Gluten free
Snacks for both mom and kids
My kids love the honey ham. I make sliders for them to eat after school before they run off to activities like soccer and dance. Along with some fruit, this holds them over until dinner time.
I also love the Honey Maple Turkey on multigrain toast with sliced golden cherry tomatoes and some carrots. It’s good brain food while I’m getting organized for my day. The McKenzie Maple Honey Turkey is oven-browned and coated with real Vermont maple syrup, making it tender and delicious.
Where to find McKenzie Natural Deli Meats
Since 1907, the McKenzie family has been handcrafting deli meats in South Burlington, Vermont. That’s not too far from my home in the Boston area. Mostly available in Vermont, the company has expanded to include a few North East states including Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York.
I found McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli meats at my local Shaw’s Supermarket. If you’re looking for a “clean-eating” deli meat to make the most delicious sandwiches and salads, check out where to buy McKenzie meats in your area.
This turquoise salad is a great recipe for eating at night. Great recipe Jenn, thank you very much.
We have so much in common! Hi from another Jenn-i! Also a mom (of 4) and fitness enthusiast. Great blog! Love the food, it all looks so yummy and easy…..and that is what we need as busy, active moms!
I love saffron, even more so with salad. Perfect combination!
I like turkey salad, but not that much. However, to my surprise, my kid loves it like a crazy. He asks for it whenever I ask him what should I cook today.
We make a cranberry and chicken salad w/feta that is very similar. In fact, we just had it for lunch today!
This sounds like a delicious lunch idea! I need to find this turkey!
This salad looks SO good! I would love to try it this weekend.
I do like turkey quite a bit and hate when it just looks yucky, all fatty and watery. This turkey looks really nice.
I love a nice leafy salad! I will definitely have to make this.
We are also fans of McKenzie Deli in our home. We love the Roast Beef, Fall off the Bone Ham, and Honey Roasted Turkey!
This sounds like a great mix of ingredients. I think it sounds delicious and I would definitely try it. Your pictures are wonderful too.
Honey maple turkey sounds SO good just about now. Your salad looks really great but I’m sure it would also be really good in a sandwich.
I love how you say you enjoy during a quiet time. Those deli meats are so well made and healthy sounding. That salad is one that anyone who loves turkey will make.
This sounds like something that I could eat for lunch every day. It looks delicious it was definitely still me. I love it.
Now this sounds delicious! I have never had a salad like this, but I am excited to try it.
