Ingredients

Ingredients for Salad:

  • 1 lb turkey tenderloin
  • 1 tsp olive oil + 2 additional tsp olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 small heads of romaine lettuce, halved or one large head quartered
  • 4 plums, halved and pitted
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced

Ingredients for Lemon Dressing - optional; you can use your own favorite instead!

  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

Instructions

Directions:

  1. Heat your grill.  Brush turkey with 1 tsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill. Grill for approximately 12-15 minutes over medium heat, flipping once about halfway, until internal temperature reaches approximately 165 degrees. Let rest for a few minutes before slicing.

  2. While the turkey is resting, drizzle remaining 2 tsp olive oil on lettuce and plums. Place those cut side down on the grill, and cook for about 3 minutes. Lettuce should be slightly wilted with some char marks, and plums will will turn a golden brown and start to caramelize. 

  3. Chop lettuce and serve on a plate topped with turkey, plums, and fresh mozzarella cheese. 

  4. To make the lemon dressing to top this salad, combine lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper in a small jar. Shake and pour over your salad.  Or, top with your own favorite dressing!
