Turkey Tacos and Spicy Turkey Salad

lb. 97% fat free ground turkey
1/2 medium onion, chopped
5-6 cloves garlic, minced
ginger, minced
fresh horseradish, minced
2 T. extra virgin olive oil

4 corn tortillas
2-3 slices fresh onion
1/2 avocado
a few spoonfuls of your favorite salsa
1 small fresh tomato, sliced (we used our first ripened garden tomato!)
sea salt and pepper
1/2 bag organic salad mix
1 organic carrot, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced or chunked

garlic powder
cayenne pepper
chili powder
red pepper flakes
onion powder

Sides (Optional):
ear of fresh corn, cooked
1/2 fresh lime, sliced

Chop onions and add onions, garlic, ginger and horseradish to a large frying pan with olive oil. Saute for a few minutes (2-3 minutes) until onions are soft; add raw turkey meat, season well, and cook on medium until the meat is no longer pink at all.

While the turkey and spices are cooking, prep corn tortillas with an ear of corn (optional- black beans would be nice here instead of corn), salsa, tomato slices, red pepper, avocado, and carrots. If you desire a lower carb option, just omit the tortillas entirely and add everything on top of a bed of salad greens (see below). Once the meat is finished, top tortillas and salad with meat. Use kitchen shears to cut scallions over the meal. Sprinkle on some sea salt and add lime wedges- they are great squeezed over the avocado without going through the mess of making guacamole! Serve with extra salsa and hot sauce. Deliciouso!
