Grilled Turkey Saltimbocca
This delicious high protein and low fat Grilled Turkey Saltimbocca makes a wonderfully quick weeknight supper, and leftovers are a delicious sandwich or wrap the following day. You can find thin sliced turkey breast cutlets in many major grocery stores, so buying a whole turkey isn’t necessary. If you can’t find them, substitute thinly sliced or pounded chicken cutlets. With a few elegant side dishes, it can easily be presented for a romantic meal. The flavor is greatly enhanced by the thinly sliced prosciutto. A little goes a long way, which is so rewarding when cooking light.
