TO MAKE THE DRESSING
In a blender, combine the cranberry sauce, oil, ginger and pepper. Puree until thick and smooth. Pour into a small jar and chill until needed.
TO MAKE THE SALAD
Heat a skillet, over medium heat until it is hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Add the walnut halves and toast them just until they are fragrant. This should only take a minute or two. Remove them to a small plate to cool.
On a platter or in a large bowl, layer the lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, apple and turkey pieces. Roughly chop the cooled walnuts and add them to the salad. Toss to combine and then top each serving with the Cranberry Dressing. Enjoy!
If using a different recipe for cranberry sauce, you might want to add a bit of lemon to this salad dressing. I make my cranberry sauce using lemon in the original recipe and that serves to provide a bit of additional tang to this salad dressing.
