Turkey, crisp pears, and smoky provolone cheese are beautifully complemented by a sweet and tangy cider vinaigrette in this amazing arugula salad. When buying pears, look for fruit that is fragrant and free of blemishes; any variety will work wonderfully. Comice pears are especially sweet, while Bartletts have the strongest signature "pear" flavor.
Total Time: 25 mins
1 pound turkey tenderloin
Salt and ground black pepper
1 tablespoon honey mustard
2 pears, cored (optional) and sliced
4 slices provolone cheese, halved
5 ounces arugula (8 cups)
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
Bias-slice turkey crosswise in eight 1-inch slices. Flatten slightly with palm of hand, then season with salt and pepper. Brush with half of the honey mustard.
In a 12-inch skillet heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Cook turkey in even layer in hot oil for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Layer pears on turkey; top each with a half-slice of cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until cheese is melted and pears are warm.
Divide arugula among serving dishes; top with turkey slices. For sauce, whisk remaining mustard and oil along with the vinegar into pan juices in skillet; cook for 30 seconds. Drizzle sauce on each serving. Sprinkle with additional pepper.
