Units Scale
  • Turkey Tips and Marinade:
  • 2 1/2 pounds turkey tenderloins
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano (or 1 tablespoon dried)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • For the Vinaigrette:
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (2 medium cloves)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh minced oregano leaves (or 1 teaspoon dried oregano)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • For the Salad:
  • 12 ounces spinach leaves
  • 1 hothouse cucumber, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeds and ribs removed, thinly sliced
  • 3 ripe tomatoes, sliced into wedges (or substitute a pint of cherry or grape tomatoes, halved)
  • 1 cup of Kalamata olives or about 30 olives (pitted or whole - your preference)
  • 8 ounce piece of Feta cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes


  1. Marinate the Turkey Tips: Whisk all the marinade ingredients in a large non-reactive bowl. Add the turkey tips and toss to coat. Marinate, covered in the fridge, for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  2. Make the Vinaigrette and Toss with Vegetables: Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients except oil: vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, oregano, basil, salt and pepper. Slowly pour in oil while whisking constantly, to emulsify. Place cucumber, onion, peppers and tomatoes in a bowl. Pour half the vinaigrette over them and toss gently to coat. Let the vegetables marinate for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Grill the Turkey and Assemble the salad Preheat the grill to medium-high. Grill the turkey tips for about 5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Toss the spinach with the remaining vinaigrette and divide it among 6 plates. Add the marinated vegetables with any remaining vinaigrette, cubed feta, olives and turkey tips. Season with salt and fresh pepper, to taste.
