Fresh Mex Turkey Tacos


No doubt that Mexican cuisine is one of my favorites.  But I really love the fresh and healthy style of Mexican cooking.  No fried greasy beef-filled tortillas smothered with melted cheese here!  The avocados, tomatoes, peppers, lime and fresh herbs blend together so well both for their visual beauty as well as their marriage of fresh flavor.

I say this as humbly as I can but this was one of the best meals I’ve created in a good number of days.  It was a beautiful flavor forward meal.  The fact that all these beautiful ingredients are in season helped considerably.

I served the turkey tacos along with a broccoli slaw salad with a sweet rice vinegar dressing and a guacamole salsa.  My girlfriend was totally speechless over this dinner.  Of course, her mouth was full most of the time so……..

Enjoy!  As always, I welcome your comments and any ideas on additional ingredients you might add.
