Buffalo Turkey Cobb Salad

While a turkey and stuffing sammie sure is delicous- and almost a tradition for most on the day post turkey- try this salad out for something different.  Yes, I am aware that my picture doesn’t include the bright red tomatoes or sliced green onions like the recipe promises.. but they were there.  Sitting pilled neatly on the cutting board as I searched fervently for the lid to the bottle of white wine vinegar.  The lid that was screwed tight on the top.. where it should be.  Did I mention I was holding the bottle in my hand?

Yea.. it was that kind of day.  So enjoy my picture sans tomatoes and green onions.  Halfway through my salad I realized that it was missing something- two things.  Oh yea.. but at least I remembered the turkey.
