Turkey Tonnato Salad

The dressing for this salad is an adaptation of the classic Vitello Tonnato sauce that's usually served over thinly sliced veal tenderloin. It's a glorious combination of flavors that works equally well with fresh vegetables. You can substitute light versions of mayonnaise and sour cream without changing the flavor. Prep: 10 minutes.
