So easy too, on a bed of mixed greens. I used key lime juice, you could use lemon...I just squeezed it on the avocado, then some rice bran oil. I have been using it for salads, and it works great when making a stir fry. It has a high smoke point, and is pretty healthy using the whole bran of the rice. You can us a good olive oil or pumpkin seed oil or what ever healthy oil that you like. Then some balsamic vinegar to taste. Seasoned with my favorite season blend, and a little sea salt. If I had tomatoes like my mom grows in her garden in Michigan I would have loved to add them here. But either way I enjoyed it a lot! Simple but good!
Hi Lynds! What a sweet post...and froggy matches your cool avo salad, ribbit! That sald looks perfect, I'd absolutely love for my lunch today (or any day...)ReplyDelete
Hi Jenn, froggy might match it, but he didn't share it. Thanks! :)Delete
Avocado is one of our favourites so this will go down well in our house. Love the little frog, hope he enjoyed hos work out :))) Keep well DianeReplyDelete
It was too funny seeing that it was a frog that moved the dumb bells! :)Delete
These turkey bites look really tender. Perfect to pair with the avocado salad.ReplyDelete
It did turn out pretty tender for a turkey breast...I will make that again.Delete
Fantastic! It is definitely avocado time - brilliant salad! Perfectly seasonal.ReplyDelete
Thanks Belinda, it was too easy! :) I almost didn;t post it, but it was so good!Delete
That salad looks so yummy and includes two of my favorite foods (turkey/avo). Adding it to the list!ReplyDelete
Wouldn't that be fun to have this for lunch by the pool and chat away?!!Delete
love your little frog fella. cute!ReplyDelete
love avocados too. yum!
At least he isn't noisy!Delete
I do have a whole turkey breast in the freezer that needs to be used up. Your turkey and avocado salad looks really good. Cute picture of the little froggy :)ReplyDelete
Sorry I've been MIA lately. Just can't seem to get back into routine after my visit to Malaysia.
That was the first time I made a whole turkey breast...I've done plenty of whole turkeys...so I was happy it turned out so good...perfect for a family my size.Delete
I know how you feel...I am so busy this week and going to Michigan next week and we are getting a new puppy, and I finally talked my husband out of the stone age and he got a iphone...and running around for his business and school starts back up the day after we get back...whew!
What a great salad! I've never heard of rice bran oil...have to check it out!ReplyDelete
This is the first bottle that I've tried...it is such mild flavor, and is good for salads and stir fries.Delete
Hmm...what is there not to love about turkey meat and avocado! I can eat this for lunch and be fully satisfied!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jocelyn! It is a satisfying lunch for me too!Delete
i will enjoy eating your turkey and avocado salad too, anytime! oh lyn, i would be so scared if you ask me to take that picture of the frog, just in front of me, he might just jumped on me !ReplyDelete
Ha! you are afraid of frogs? I had a tiny tree frog land on my leg once...I just jumped a little :)Delete
Who wouldn't love easy and delicious dishes like that??? yum!ReplyDelete
I never think to get a turkey at not-Thanksgiving time, but why not? Love this cookbook - my go to!ReplyDelete
This salad sound perfect for a healthy diet!ReplyDelete
This sounds perfect for the heat wave we are currently having.ReplyDelete
It looks refreshing and sounds delicious. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
I love turkey and balsamic so I would love your salad. That would make a nice light lunch for me. And that cute frog.....he is sure strong to move your dumb bell...haha. I would have freaked out...hahaReplyDelete
I have been thinking about utilizing avocados to some Korean dishes. I am glad to see the wonderful salads you been making with them. I heard about rice bran oil but never imagine that you can get oil from the rice. There are so many things in culinary world that I need to try.ReplyDelete
Hi Lindsey, haven't heard from you since my last comment on your blog...I see you're on the 'avocado' kick, while I'm still on my last 'leg' of the mangoes!ReplyDelete
Love this healthy and delicious salad with the turkey and the avocado!
Your photo cracks me up abt. the froggy...he just wanted to exercise a little, he, he!
So happy for you that you found a treasure, and I do mean a treasure of a book! My all time favorite thrift find as well. I got mine...'spanking brand new' soft covered same book at Goodwill, 2yrs ago for 79 cents, now the soft covered ones go for at least $2 or $3 and hard covered ones go up to $5 $6 the same price you paid...still great bargain. I love my Mark Bittman book! Great find, as you know the hard covered ones retail @$29.99 at least!
The salads looks good! I am glad yo can eat Colombian food there!!!! How was the arepa? Did you like the place?Sometimes Colombian restaurants in the USA don't have good food!ReplyDelete
Avocados and turkey....what a teriffic combo! Loved this dish!!ReplyDelete
Btw, I have to try Colombian food...never tried yet.
I love each ingredient. Healthy and delicious.ReplyDelete
Hi Lyndsey, your salad look appetizing. Great combo.ReplyDelete
The frog look cute :)
Have a nice weekend.
Great dish, I'm on a huge avocado trip right now, love em'! Umm 5 bucks for Marks book is a steal!!ReplyDelete

Editor, Mr. Food
I had never roasted the entire turkey (yet) in my life! I'd imagine it's very easy and you can use the meat for many different dishes. I love the simple salad dish like this.ReplyDelete
Colombian food place? Wow that's something we can't find in my neighborhood! Looks good too!
Nice turkey and avocado salad Lindsey, perfect for lunch...and the little frog I am not sure if I would happy in seeing one of this little creatures :)ReplyDelete
Hope you are having a great week!
Love that hearty and healthy salad, Lyndsey. Roasting a turkey breast is a great idea. Usually I don't think of turkey until around the holidays. Cute little visitor you had. Amazing that he can walk up a window.ReplyDelete
Awww that little frog stole my heart :)ReplyDelete
Guess what Lundz! Till today I still have yet tried the avocado. haha... Whenever I reached to the fruit counter...always ended up just by staring at those avocados. Not knowing how to choose a good one. They all look the same to me. haha....ReplyDelete
