Turkey Salad GetRealLive Style

Okay friends it’s time to share another recipe with everyone.

As many of you know (at least those who follow me on Instagram and Facebook) I love to post pictures of the food we eat. I know many people post pics of food for whatever reason and I’m not entirely sure what my reasoning is, however I love doing it. If I were to think about it, I think I like to post pictures because I like to show how easy it is to eat well. Not only eating well but because I love cooking I like showing how easy it can be and how affordable it is. Also, many of you know that I am passionate about bringing family and friends together and what better way than through healthy food solutions that satify any palate.



So, after posting a picture of our GetRealLive lunch today I am now sharing the intimate details of this scrumptious lunch. It took all of 20mins to make (from prep to mouth and that included all the washing and chopping plus the cooking of the Turkey) now that’s achievable.

Turkey Salad
Spinach – The amount will depend on how many will be eating so eyeball this
Napa Cabbage – Also known as Chinese Cabbage I would suggest half a bunch chopped small
1 Red Capsicum (Red Pepper) – Seeded and chopped
1 Orange – Peeled and chopped
Red Onion – Put as much in as you would like

(Note: This is all I added today but make it your own and add more capsicum, celery, avocado, strawberries, blue cheese, whatever you want just have fun)

Salad Dressing:
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, crushed or to taste
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 pinch freshly ground black pepper

Turkey Breasts:
Place them in a bowl and splash some olive oil on & add what I like to call the ‘Chili Lime Rub’. This is a combo of:

Smoked Paprika
Cayenne Pepper
Lime/Lemon Juice
Crushed Red Peppers (the dried ones you put on Pizza to spice it up)
Sprinkle of Sea Salt (keep this limited we don’t want too much salt in anything)

(Note: Amounts will depend on how much you want to make. Alternatively you can buy the Chili Lime Rub from ‘The Pampered Chef and trust me, it is SUPER good)

Put your Turkey Breasts in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Combine your spices separately then pour over Turkey mixing well. Make sure all of the Turkey is covered. Let it sit for 5 mins to absorb the flavours. Place Turkey in a hot skillet (fry pan) on high head and sear all sides. Lower your heat slightly and let the Turkey cook for 2-3mins each side. Make sure it’s cooked through before serving.

Mix all your salad ingredients together and use your clean hands to fully toss everything. Pour Dressing over and mix with hands or tongs (don’t be afraid to massage your salad and make sure everything is mixed well)

Plate your salad making sure each plate gets something of everything. Slice your Turkey breast (I do it on an angle just because it looks nicer) and place it on top of the salad and serve.

This is seriously Yumm~o. You can substitute with Chicken of course or even Fish. Very tasty so go ahead and make it and invite someone to share…. Everything tastes better when it’s shared 🙂
