Turkey Salad

Ground Turkey cooked and served topping a salad is not only fast but, packed full of flavour and perfect on a busy night.

You will need:
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 fresh red chili
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1/2 cup young broccoli (sometimes called broccolette)
  • romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup jicama (pronounced HEE- KA-MA) chopped into sticks
  • 1 cup English cucumbers - cut into sticks
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • salt/pepper to taste

Step 1: in a hot saute pan add turkey and olive oil. Cook well until all the water has evaporated and the meat starts to brown in oil.

Step 2: in a food processor add onion, garlic, chili, spring onion and process until finely minced.

Step 3: slice young broccoli.

Step 4: once meat is browned add vegetables and broccoli and all remaining seasonings. Add the sesame oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, cumin and lime juice. Cook a few minutes until broccoli is done but still crunchy.

Step 5: prepare salad and dress with oil and vinegar right as you are ready to serve. 

Top with turkey and broccoli and a sprinkle of chopped peanuts if you like.
