    4 oz. watercress
    1 lb. sliced cooked turkey
    2 small oranges
    1/4 cup cranberry sauce
    1 tbls. oil
    1 tbls. white wine vinegar
    1/4 cup chopped pistachios

    Wash and dry the watercress. Break into large sprigs, discarding any thick stems. Arrange on a serving platter.
    Arrange turkey slices in the center of the watercress. Using a sharp knife, peel the oranges, removing all the white pith, cut into slices and arrange around the turkey.
    Place the cranberry sauce, oil and vinegar in a small bowl. Whisk until combined. Spoon the dressing over the turkey. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios and serve immediately.

    Note: This recipe is an excellent way to use up leftover cooked turkey. For the leanest salad, choose breast meat.
