Warm turkey salad with coronation dressing

    14 min

    Spice up those cold nights with this twist on a traditional Coronation Salad. Round, butterhead lettuce is one of the UK’s oldest varieties and is grown in the UK all year round. This lettuce is known for its sweet, delicate flavour and so makes a great partner for the gently spiced, creamy dressing. Great for using up turkey leftovers!
