This Piri Piri Turkey Salad shouts ‘summer’.
Enjoy it outside, weather permitting!
  1. Mix the piri piri sauce into the diced turkey. This step can be prepared the night before to enhance the flavour of the meat.
  2. Heat the oil in a griddle pan or frying pan over a high heat. Cook the turkey for 1 – 2 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through.
  3. Put the turkey to one side and cook the pepper strips as the turkey, so they are seared and slightly brown, but still with some bite.
  4. Put the peppers to one side and sear the cherry tomatoes for 2-3 minutes, shaking the pan a few times to ensure they do not stick. Don’t let them loose their shape or get too mushy.
  5. Distribute the lettuce leaves, cooked turkey, peppers, tomatoes and olives evenly into four bowls or plates. Top with finely sliced sundried tomatoes and dress with a little olive oil and a squeeze of lemon if you like.
