Grilled Turkey and Strawberry Salad
Ingredients
  • 1 1 3/4 - 2  pound  boneless turkey breast half
  • 1  recipe  Lemon-Pepper Rub
  • 4 - 6  slices pancetta
  • 1 5 - 6  ounce package  fresh baby spinach
  • 6  ounces  dried cavatappi or gemelli pasta
  • 1  large yellow sweet pepper, seeded and cut into bite-size strips
  • 1  recipe  Strawberry-Sherry Vinaigrette
  • 2  cups  fresh strawberries, halved
  • 1/3  cup  toasted pine nuts
Directions

1. Remove skin from turkey, if present. Spread Lemon-Pepper Rub evenly over turkey. Top with pancetta. Tie at 2-inch intervals with 100-percent-cotton kitchen string.

2. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above pan. Place turkey on grill rack over drip pan. Cover and grill for 45 to 55 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink (170 degrees F). (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Cover and grill as above.)

3. Spread spinach on a large serving platter. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain again. In a large bowl combine pasta and sweet pepper. Add Strawberry-Sherry Vinaigrette; toss to coat. Spoon pasta mixture on top of spinach.

4. Slice turkey. Arrange turkey slices and strawberries on top of salad. Sprinkle with pine nuts.

From the Test KitchenTo Make Ahead:
  • Prepare as directed through Step 3, except do not spoon pasta mixture on top of spinach. Cover and chill turkey, spinach, and pasta mixture separately for up to 24 hours. To serve, spoon pasta mixture on top of spinach and continue as directed in Step 4.
Shortcut:
  • Instead of preparing Lemon-Pepper Rub, use 1 1/2 teaspoons purchased lemon-pepper seasoning. Use 3/4 cup bottled berry vinaigrette salad dressing in place of the Strawberry-Sherry Vinaigrette.
