06 Jun A healthy summer bowl for the cheese lover
The Summer has arrived at Hubbards Farm.
The weather is getting warmer and if there is something comforting and refreshing to serve after work, it ‘s the healthy salad we created.
We are not only passionate about turkeys, but we also love all kinds of cheese, especially mozzarella which is our favourite. Last week, we held a picnic with the team to enjoy this lovely weather. There were lots of tasty dishes prepared by everyone, but one course stood up and got everyone’s attention- this healthy summer bowl, full of protein, avocado, and cheese! It was definitely a favourite with the team!
So, today we are going to share this recipe with you, and don’t worry- it is really easy, simple and quick!
How to do it
Step 1: put the turkey meat in a clean bowl with some yogurt and leave it at the refrigerator overnight to make it more tender. Or, if you don’t have time, try leaving it for 10-20 minutes at least.
Step 2: wrap in foil and put the turkey into a preheated oven (150 degrees) for 15 minutes, then open the foil parcel and continue to roast the turkey for 2-3 minutes to give a nice golden brown finish.
(Note: all ovens are different, don’t forget to adjust the time & temperature accordingly)
Step 3: whisk together olive oil, black pepper, salt, and balsamic vinegar in a separate bowl to create a dressing.
Step 4: Get a clean bowl (or your lunch box) and put a handful of rocket in.
Step 5: Slice up your turkey and half an avocado and add to your rocket.
Step 6: Put as much mozzarella as you love in the bowl and pour over your dressing to taste.
Step 7: Find a nice spot under the sun to enjoy this salad.
Wine, Salad and Sunshine- the happiness of summer
As everyone has different tastes and preferences, i didn’t want to be too prescriptive with how much you should use. It’s really up to you, and who you are preparing for. We just love this combination of flavours here at Grove Smith Turkeys.
Personally, I love to have this summer bowl for dinner, after a hard day’s work on the farm. We like to eat outside and enjoy the sun and long evenings. A nice healthy summer bowl and a glass of red wine, what a perfect combination!
