This grilled salad is a perfect summer recipe! You’ll combine grilled turkey, grilled romaine, and grilled plums with a little fresh mozzarella for a healthy, low carb dinner or lunch. Great barbecue recipe to impress your guests!
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.
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.
Chop lettuce and serve on a plate topped with turkey, plums, and fresh mozzarella cheese.
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!
