Prep time

8 min.

Cook time

2 min.

  • 2 slices uncured turkey bacon (look for brands with 35 calories per slice)
  • 3 slices (3 oz) reduced sodium turkey breast, rolled up and sliced
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cups salad greens
  • 1/4 avocado, diced
  • For the Greek yogurt balsamic vinaigrette:
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 tsp honey or sorghum syrup
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Cook turkey bacon in microwave between paper towels, according to package directions.

Roll up turkey slices into a tube shape and cut in even pieces so they look like spirals when turned on their side.

Fill a bowl with chopped salad greens. Add turkey, tomatoes, crumbled turkey bacon, and diced avocado.

Drizzle with 1-2Tbsp of dressing, and save the remainder of the recipe for another salad. To save even more time, make dressing in advance.
