I partnered with Butterball Easy Fresh for this post. The Easy Fresh line is now a regular part of our family’s meals, so it was my pleasure to create this recipe with them.
Isn’t salad the most delish? Especially when it has fresh turkey, bacon, and a spicy chipotle buttermilk dressing? Yeah, I thought that would get your attention. I’m just going to leave that one here for the moment.
May isn’t only Salad Month, it’s also Celiac Awareness Month.I’ve partnered with Butterball to create a delish, gluten-free salad using their Easy Fresh lineto celebrate salad month, and I think I’ve really hit the nail on the head with this one. Having come from a long line of legendary salad makers, I know a good salad when I see it.
If you’re avoiding gluten (and you aren’t a fan of gluten-free bread), you can still get that scrumptious BLT flavour with this dish. Butterball’s Easy Fresh line is completely gluten free, so unlike some seasoned meat products, you don’t have to worry that there’s gluten hiding in there. You’re free to indulge!
I used the Easy Fresh bone-in turkey breast for this recipe. All I did was throw it on the BBQ, and seriously, it was that simple. It was such a no-brainer to cook this piece of turkey that,to be perfectly honest, I actually FORGOT about it and almost disintegrated it on the grill! I’m known for doing things like that, but luckily,I remembered it eventually and happily discovered that it was perfectly cooked. PHEW. As you can see, the turkey breast became bronzed and gorgeous and the seasoning that was already on the meat was perfection. I’ve already bought these Easy Fresh products for my family but every time I make them, I love how quick and delicious they are.
This salad serves two, but you can double the dressing to use for more people or, in other dishes. Once you get a taste of it, it’s hard to forget. You’ll also have turkey breast leftovers, which are perfect for sandwiches, stir fries, snacks (I spread pieces with mustard for a post-workout shot of protein), and anything else you can think of.
Salad month is about to become your favorite time of year.
This incredibly easy salad has the BLT taste you love, without the bread! I've added juicy fresh turkey breast, plus a spicy dressing that takes this recipe to another level.
