Take your traditional turkey salad to extraordinary heights. This sweet-and-spicy salad is quick, tasty, and light (but you'd never know it).

 

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare turkey, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and chopped onion to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add turkey and next 5 ingredients (through salt) to pan; cook 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

Step 2

To prepare dressing, combine 2 tablespoons vinegar and next 6 ingredients (through garlic) in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 3

To prepare salad, cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Combine lettuce and remaining ingredients except mint sprigs. Place about 2 cups lettuce mixture into each of 4 bowls. Top each with 1 cup noodles and 1 1/2 cups turkey mixture; drizzle each with 1 1/2 tablespoons dressing. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.

I did make some rather major modifications but the flavors meld really well. First of all I did not serve it as a salad and did not use the lettuce at all. 2nd I used chicken breasts instead of turkey. I think I would prefer to marinade the chicken in the initial sauce rather then add it to the onion turkey(chicken) mixture. At the end I tossed in the noodles and the dressing and stir fried it all together to make more of a lomein. I put the herbs on top at the end. Love the flavor of 5 spice and the dressing went well to use as a sauce for the noodles
