Turkey and Roasted Tomato Salad

“Perfect to use up that holiday turkey!!! A healthy recipe from Chef MD (John La Puma, MD). Recipe published as Diabetic friendly in Walgreen’s Diabetes and You. States dietary exchanges are 1 starch, 2 vegetables, 2 lean meat and 2 fats. NOTE: I made this salad today and I recommend putting Greek or Italian seasoning on the tomatoes before cooking (delish) and the basil on top really makes the difference in this dish (otherwise it’s just a salad).”

Ready In:



  • Preheat broiler.
  • Place tomatoes, cut side up, in a foil lined jelly roll pan.
  • Coat lightly with cooking spray and season with salt/pepper if you like. Broil 3 inches from heat source 2-3 minutes, or until hot and beginning to brown (do not overcook or tomatoes will become mushy).
  • In the meanwhile, arrange greens on four serving plates. Cut turkey and cheese into julinne strips and arrange in a circle fanned out around the greens.
  • Whisk together vinegar, oil and garlic.
  • Arrange warm tomatoes around the perimeter of the salad, drizzle dressing over the entire salad, sprinkle with basil and serve.
