2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, halved and seeded 1 Tbsp. minced chives 1 tsp. dried tarragon* 1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt 1/2 lb. roasted turkey breast, diced 1/8 tsp. crushed black pepper, or to taste 1/8 tsp. sea salt, or to taste 1 Tbsp. dried cranberries, blueberries or cherries
  1. Using a measuring tablespoon, scoop about 1 Tbsp. avocado from around the cavity to make it bigger. Place the scooped avocado in a medium bowl.

  3. Fold in the turkey. Taste and add pepper and salt if desired.
  4. Scoop turkey salad into the avocado halves, making a mound in the center.
  5. Scatter the dried cranberries (or blueberries/cherries if using) over the salads and garnish with the reserved chives. Serve, or if not serving immediately sprinkle avocado with lemon juice, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with watercress or an herb salad.
