Parsley is an incredibly healthy food that many people do not know how to incorporate easily into meals. The dressing for this salad uses two full cups of fresh parsley, and is delicious beyond words.
For the Dressing:
8 oz. crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 c. fresh parsley, rinsed well and removed from stems
2 c. heavy cream
½ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. coriander
1 c. mayonnaise
In a blender or food processor, combine all of the ingredients except the mayonnaise. When the mixture is well combined, transfer it to a medium sized bowl and fold in the mayonnaise until the mixture is smooth. Chill for one hour before serving.
For the Salad:
Add equal portions of each, depending on how many are being served, and the desired portion size:
fresh red tomato, thickly sliced
fresh red radish, thinly sliced
cold cooked turkey breast, cut into bite sized pieces
a sprinkle of salt to taste
parsley gorgonzola dressing
Slice the tomato thickly for the bottom layer of the salad, then layer the radish and turkey over it. Add a light sprinkling of salt to taste, and then top the salad with the parsley dressing. Enjoy!
