Turkey Citrus Avocado Salad

Sara Lee Premium Meats has JUST announced that its turkey, ham and chicken deli meats, found at the deli counter, now feature the American Heart Association Heart-Check Mark.

Some other good news is that Sara Lee recently announced that it’s taken additional steps to further improve and build upon these product offerings as they now contain:

  • No added hormones
  • Zero grams trans fat
  • No MSG
  • No gluten
  • No fillers
  • No artificial flavors

I love that Sara Lee has stepped up to the plate to give us healthy options for lunches (or dinners!).   I enjoy making and having sandwiches for lunch so we buy deli meat a lot.  There are lots of selections at our local stores but I won’t buy just anything.  Not only does flavor have to be a deciding factor, but how good it is for my family is just as important.   I’m excited to buy Sara Lee Deli Meats more now than I was before, knowing how healthy they are for us!

One of my favorite things to add to a salad is some turkey and ham. Check out this recipe below, the picture alone makes me hungry!
