Do you mean turkey breast and thighs or ground turkey? I have a few recipes for the larger pieces, and for the ground turkey I use it just like ground beef.

This works with Chicken or Turkey


Chicken or Turkey (cubed)


2 lemons

1 cup of plain yogurt or substitute

salt n'pepper


Chop turkey or chicken into cubes

Boil in a mixture of water, lemon juice, and dill

Drain when cooked. Cool.

when chicken is cold:

add plain yogurt until chicken is coated

add fresh coarsely chopped dill

add juice of 1 lemon, and its zest

add Salt and pepper to taste


Its a lovely cold salad, great for summer.

High in protein, very light.

It has dairy, but am sure you can substitute the yogurt with something else and get roughly the same fresh taste.
