Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 medium green pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 celery rib, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 3 medium tomatoes
  • TURKEY:
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 package (20 ounces) turkey breast tenderloins
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Additional fresh basil

Directions

Whisk together first five ingredients. Stir in green pepper, celery, onion and basil. Cut tomatoes into wedges; cut wedges in half. Stir into pepper mixture.
In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg and lemon juice. In another shallow bowl, toss bread crumbs with cheese, walnuts and lemon pepper.
Cut tenderloins crosswise into 1-in. slices; flatten slices with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Dip in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture, patting to adhere.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add a third of the turkey; cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Repeat twice with remaining oil and turkey. Serve with tomato mixture; sprinkle with basil. Yield: 6 servings.
Health Tip: At just 13 grams carbohydrates per serving, this is a hearty option for anyone looking to cut carbs.
Editor's Note: To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
