Be A Healthy Chef. Turkey Peach Salad.

The fresh peaches and plums in this salad in addition to the lemon-poppy seed dressing are a refreshing combination! Try this yummy summer salad while peaches and plums are still in season.

To prepare turkey:

1. Cut 2 turkey breast tenderloins in half horizontally

2. Rub each side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper

3. Grill until no longer pink in the middle (about 12-15 minutes, flipping once halfway)

To prepare fruit:

1. Slice 2 peaches and 2 plums

2. Place in bowl and toss with lemon juice until fruit is lightly coated

To prepare dressing:

1. Combine 1/2 cup low fat lemon yogurt, 1 thinly sliced green onion, and 1/4 tsp poppy seeds

2. If necessary, stir in additional lemon juice until drizzling consistency is reached

Divide mixed salad greens (I used Boston Lettuce because I had that on hand) onto 4 plates, arrange turkey and fruit on top and drizzle with dressing.

Been there, cooked that tips:

  • Add the juices from the peaches and plums to the dressing mix to help thinning it to drizzling consistency.
  • Slice up a few extra peaches and plums for a healthy snack the next day. Coating them with lemon juice keeps them fresh longer.
  • Substitute baby shrimp or chicken to this recipe to get a different taste (Keep in mind this will affect the nutrition information).
