Romaine and Turkey Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

Roast turkey from the deli counter or Thanksgiving leftovers (or meat from a rositterie chicken, for that matter) can go into this simple but unique salad. Avocado is blended into the already creamy dressing, adding heart-healthy unsaturated fats, nice sweet flavor, and luxuriously velvety texture. The easy cheese toasts make a nice crunchy addition, but garlic bread might be a nice change of pace: Just mix a clove or two of chopped garlic with the Parmesan before sprinkling on the bread.
