Foster Farms Recipes for the Grill

These days, the barbecue can be fired up in January as often as July. Grilling's great anytime because it adds flavor while sizzling away fat. Bonus: no pan to wash!

Grilled Turkey Walnut Salad
3 Foster Farms Turkey Breast Tenderloins
1/2 cup dry red wine
2 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. shallot, finely minced
1 tsp. dried oregano
2 medium fresh tomatoes, cut in wedges
4 tsp. walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup sliced celery
4 Tbsp. black olives, sliced
1 head leaf lettuce, washed and broken into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup bottled fat-free ranch dressing
1. Whisk together red wine, soy sauce, olive oil, shallot and oregano.

2. Wash tenderloins, pat dry and place in shallow dish to marinate. Add wine mixture and turn to coat each tenderloin. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours, turning turkey several times.

3. When ready to cook, spray grill or broiler pan with cooking spray. Preheat grill or broiler to medium. Remove turkey from marinade, pat dry and brush lightly with olive oil. Cook 5" from heat for 8 to 10 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned and no longer pink inside.

4. While turkey is cooking, toss together tomatoes, walnuts, feta cheese, celery, olives and lettuce in a large bowl. Divide into four portions.

5. When tenderloins are fully cooked, slice, crosswise, on cutting board, into 1/2-inch diagonal pieces. Arrange turkey in the center of each salad, and serve with ranch dressing.

Serves 4.
