Thoughtful Turkey Salad

'Eat It to Beat It'

GMA Recipes
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

It's no mere coincidence that walnuts are shaped like little brains. With dense reserves of brain-boosting omega-3s, a cache of anti-inflammatory polyphenols, and the ability to dramatically increase levels of serotonin (a nutrient vital for sound sleep), walnuts may do as much for your noggin as any other food out there. They may be the star of this salad, but turkey, loaded with choline, and strawberries, an excellent source of flavonoids, will help keep you sharp, too.


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ Tbps balsamic vinegar
  • 8 cups baby spinach
  • ½ cup sliced strawberries
  • ¼ cup fresh goat cheese or feta, crumbled
  • 2 Tbsp walnuts (best when toasted)
  • 2 ounces smoked turkey, torn into thin slices
  • Cooking Directions

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the spinach, strawberries, cheese, walnuts, and turkey. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper.
