Turkey Salad with Baba Ghanoush

Turkey Salad with Baba Ghanoush


2 cups turkey, chopped into ½ thick, bite-sized pieces
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 tbsp. fresh mint, chopped
¾ tsp. red pepper flakes
2 cloves garlic, minced
unrefined sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 organic cucumber, unpeeled and chopped
3 whole wheat tandoori naan (Indian flat bread), cut in half
¾ cup baba ghanoush (eggplant spread)
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce


Whisk the vinegar, mint, red pepper flakes, 1 clove garlic, and ¼ tsp. salt in a shallow dish. Add the turkey, and marinate
for 15 to 20 minutes.
While the meat is marinating, mix the tomatoes, cucumber, and the remaining clove of garlic in a bowl. Drizzle with olive and season with salt and pepper. After meat has marinated, toss with tomatoes and cucumber.
Preheat a pan on the stove. Brush the naan with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Grill in the pan until brown marks the bread, turning once. Place each naan on a plate and spread with baba ghanoush. Top with lettuce and turkey salad and drizzle with any juices from the bowl.

Serve and enjoy!

Serves 6.
