This is a light, very tasty and yet, a nicely satisfying lunch.
When lean and light is the rule, this salad is just the ticket for a healthy lunch, light dinner or supper.
With the holidays, seemingly always around the corner, you'll need some great recipes for those upcoming left overs, right?
Well, here's one we're pretty darn sure you'll enjoy.
The other thing that's great about a salad like this is that it's super forgiving.
Don't have one of the ingredients?
Add something else instead.
Chicken would be great in lieu of it's larger cousin.
Black beans could be swapped out for kidney, pintos or black eyed peas.
A red onion could be exchanged with a sweet or green onion.
Taco seasoning could be used instead of the cumin.
We're sure you get the idea.
1/2 c. Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar.
2 Tbs. lime juice.
1 Tbs. Dijon mustard.
1 Tbs. ground cumin.
2 tsp. hot pepper sauce.
1/2 tsp. sea salt.
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper.
1 lb. boneless gobbler breast, cut into 4 pieces.
1 can (19 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed.
1-1/2 c. frozen corn kernels, thawed.
1/2 sweet red pepper, chopped.
3 green onions chopped.
1/8 c. cilantro, chopped.
First, in a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, Dijon mustard, cumin, hot pepper sauce, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper.
Place gobbler pieces in a non-metalic bowl or pan.
Pour 1/2 of the olive oil mixture over gobbler and turn pieces until coated with mixture.
Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
Set aside remaining oil mixture until ready to use.
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Grill marinated gobbler pieces for 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through.
Slice pieces into thin strips.
In a large bowl, mix together black beans, red pepper, green onions and turkey strips.
Pour reserved olive oil mixture over top.
Mix to combine.
Stir in cilantro. (optional)
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Makes 6 servings.
This is the perfect recipe for using leftover chicken or turkey at any time, not just holidays.
