  • 1/4 tsp Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 4 Medium yellow potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 Large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 Bell pepper, diced

  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pico de Gallo

  1. Warm olive oil in a pan over medium-heat heat. Add the potatoes, peppers and onion and cook until the potatoes are browned on all sides, 5-10 minutes. Reduce heat, cover and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the pico de gallo ingredients in a bowl, adding salt and lime juice a little at a time until desired taste is achieved and set aside.
  3. Remove potatoes, peppers and onion from the skillet and spread on the bottom of a serving platter.
  4. Place the ground turkey in the same skillet and raise heat to medium-heat. Sauté, breaking up the meat into crumbles, until cooked through. Add the seasonings and combine well.
  5. Add all the dressing ingredients to a blender and process until smooth.
  6. Spread the turkey on top of the potatoes and vegetables, add the pico de gallo, then drizzle with the dressing.
