Grill-Side Turkey Salad
I've enjoyed cooking for as long as I can remember...I even majored in home economics in college. I'm now in my mid-70's and enthusiastically cook and bake with my granddaughter.
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Grill: 20 min. + chilling
- 2 turkey breast tenderloins (1-1/2 pounds)

- Sprinkle each tenderloin with 1/2 teaspoon tarragon. Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 8-10 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°. Cool.
