  • Step 1

    To prep the Citrus Turkey Cutlets, combine all ingredients except turkey in a food processor. Blend to a coarse puree.
  • Step 2

    Place turkey in a gallon freezer bag. Add marinade.
  • Step 3

    Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • Step 4

    To prepare the salad, make the vinaigrette. Combine the red wine vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir until salt is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Reserve.
  • Step 5

    Remove the turkey cutlets from the marinade and grill over medium heat for about 4 minutes per side, or until an internal temperature of 165°F is reached on a meat thermometer.
  • Step 6

    Toss the salad ingredients, including field greens, avocado, grape tomatoes, and red onion, with enough vinaigrette to lightly coat. Pile the salad in the center of plate.
