Turkey Tonnato (Turkey With Tuna Sauce)

20 mins (prep 20)
10 ingredients
6-8 servings
Rather than traditional veal (vitello tonnato), this recipe makes good use of leftover thinly sliced turkey breast. The sauce, given great body and piquancy with the addition of capers and chopped anchovy fillets, is enormously simple to make with a food processor or blender. It is visually impressive, with garnishes such as thinly sliced lemon wedges, imported Mediterranean-style black olives and tourches of finely chopped parsley, was created by Craig Claiborne and Pierre Franey of The New York Times. Serve with tomato slices or a mixed green sald on the side.
