Salad and Sandwich: Mixed Herbs and Turkey

Pin It
I like herbs, and recently an herb salad has been on my mind. A few weeks ago I bought some tarragon, which I don't use often, and was determined to waste none of it. This started a week of herb salads.
For my salad greens, I had tarragon, parsley and watercress. To that I added radishes, olives, avocado, tomatoes, and feta. Then, I made a balsamic vinaigrette. The husband thought I had made some sort of discovery, and he wanted me to package it and sell it. But I had to break it to him gently that I did not invent herb salads. He's just. . . behind the times. It was a blow to him.
Our sandwiches were rather simple. The husband's homemade bread, mayo (which I don't like, but decided this sandwich could use it), mustard, watercress, tomatoes, avocado, smoked turkey, and Muenster cheese. I usually always add salad dressing on my sandwich greens, but these were hard enough to eat, and with the salad on the side, it wasn't really necessary.
