Dinner was a B.L.A.S.T!

mr d and i had dinner at the black bear diner a few weeks ago.  on the menu was a "B.L.A.S.T. Sandwich."  i was so close to ordering this bacon, lettuce, avocado, swiss cheese, and tomato treat.  but alas, i opted for pancakes instead.  yet, the idea of the B.L.A.S.T. intrigued me.  i was thinking about how i could do a salad with bacon bits, lettuce, avocado, something, and tomato.  but then i'd need to add more protein.  so the tomato turned into turkey.  ok, a club salad.  but what to do for that s?  then i got spinach in my bountiful basket, and all problems were solved.  then mr d and i were at a bbq, and someone had brought a salad with raspberries.  i love raspberries.  sub berries for bacon.  but then, does avocado really fit in anymore?  i think avocado always fits in, but mr d is not that big a fan.  enter almonds. so dinner was a B.L.A.S.T:  berries, lettuce, almonds, spinach, and turkey.  and it was a perfect summer dinner.  do you really need a recipe for this?  not really.  i cooked a turkey breast in the crockpot in chicken stock, shredded it.  in a large bowl, mix together some lettuce, some spinach, and a pack of raspberries.  top each serving with some shredded turkey and a sprinkling of sliced almonds.  for the dressing i used a greek vinaigrette.
