A Whole New Season For Turkey and Giveaway

Turkey Nicoise Salad with Sundried Tomato Dressing
Summer is here and we are super excited about cooking with Canadian turkey. Summer is the perfect season to cook, eat, and grill turkey. It's a light and lean source of protein that can be enjoyed hot or cold, perfect for those hot summer days. Turkey is packed with flavour, vitamins and essential nutrients, making it a healthy choice for our family. 

Turkey is easy to prepare, and there is a variety of cuts available such as wings, drumsticks, breast, and thighs. We can find ground meat, burgers, and sausages at our local grocery store. Turkey is fantastic on the grill as well. We think it is a great everyday choice for meals.

Canadian turkey is versatile and easy to prepare. Just choose your favourite meat protein recipe and switch it up with turkey instead! It's perfect added to pasta or salads for a protein boost, cooks up tasty and juicy on the BBQ, and tastes great the next day, too. 
Turkey Nicoise Salad with Sundried Tomato Dressing
The following is a recipe to make Turkey Nicoise Salad with Sundried Tomato Dressing, which serves 2. We can prep it in 15 minutes and cooking time will be about 20 minutes.

Salad Ingredients: 
½ head radicchio
½ cup of corn (fresh or frozen)
½ lb green beans
12 mini potatoes
12 sundried olives
12 cherry tomatoes
1.5 lb package of turkey scallopini or 1 small turkey breast, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to season
2 tbsp salt

Scrub the potatoes. Take ½ the salt and add to a pot of boiling water. Boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain and cool.


While the potatoes are cooking, prepare and cook turkey breast. Season turkey pieces with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a sauté pan. Lower heat to medium and cook the turkey breast slices until cooked through for about 5 minutes on each side. Remove from heat. 

Trim green beans. Take ½ the salt and add to a pot of boiling water. Boil beans until tender but still crisp for 5-7 minutes. Cook corn until tender.

Cut potatoes in half, shred radicchio, and wash and cut cherry tomatoes. Remove pits from olives and rip into pieces.


Assemble the salad. Sprinkle radicchio on the bottom of a large serving plate. Top with potatoes and green beans. Layer over tomatoes. Sprinkle with olives and corn. Finish with a healthy drizzle of dressing, making sure to coat all vegetables. Serve immediately.

    1. Hi Bina, thank you for checking in with me. I checked on Rafflecopter and I am able to see your entry starting July 5th. Hope your surgery went well and you are feeling better. Kind regards

    2. THANKS, I think with so many surgerys so close together, this ones a little harder on me or I'm trying too hard, I just want/need to get back to work. In my area you are only allowed 15 weeks, so I am headed back in two weeks instead of 8.
