This sounds very good. I'm going to try and make it. I'm like you I like turkey and chicken that is real turkey and chicken not the processed stuff.

I love club sandwiches but they're serious calorie bombs. I created this salad to get the flavors without the calories. It serves one as an entree or two as a starter and also multiplies easily:

2 cups torn Bibb lettuce, washed and thoroughly dried
1 Roma tomato, seeded and diced
3 ounces roasted turkey breast, cut in 1/2 inch dice
1 thick slice bacon (preferably applewood), finely diced
1 slice (1 to 1 1/2 oz.) French bread, toasted
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, halved
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise, preferably olive oil based
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

Fry the bacon in a skillet until brown and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a saucer lined with a paper towel, set aside. Brush the toasted bread with the olive oil and rub with the cut sides of the garlic clove. Cut into 1/2 inch croutons and set aside.

Place the lettuce, tomato, bacon and turkey in a salad bowl. In a small bowl whisk together mayonnaise, lemon juice, sald and pepper. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Top with the croutons and serve.

Notes:

1. You can use any kind of lettuce you like, but I don't recommend iceberg. JMHO, but I find it tasteless.

2. If you can't get a Roma tomato, half of a regular tomato can be used.

3. Chicken breast can be substituted for the turkey if you like. I'm very picky about turkey and chicken -- if I don't see it come off the bone, I don't eat it. So obviously I DON'T recommend processed deli turkey or chicken roll for this. You can use the breast meat from a rotisserie chicken from the store if you like but you'll need to adjust the salt in the dressing.
