Panera Roasted Turkey Fuji Apple Salad

The Panera roasted turkey Fuji apple salad recipe found on the chain restaurant's menu is a crisp, flavor-packed meal that combines nuts, turkey and apple chips with an apple-infused white balsamic vinegar dressing. At the restaurant, the salad can be enjoyed in entree-size, or as part of their "you-pick-two" option where you are able to enjoy a 1/2 salad along with another selection. While the roasted Fuji apple salad is great in the restaurant, it is an easy recipe to replicate at home. The secret of recreating the salad is to use fresh ingredients and a high-quality Gorgonzola cheese crumble.

Panera is a chain of fast-casual restaurants that offers a wide range of salads, soups and sandwiches. The fresh-based concept allows home chefs a good basis for recreating healthy, yet flavorful salad options.
