Crunchy Grape & Turkey Salad Roll-Up

I have this awesome book from Weight Watchers called Fruit & Veggies A to Z. It contains 175 simple recipes to use with a variety of produce. The best part of the book is that it teaches you what to look for when purchasing  produce… how to choose, how to store, and what’s “in season”. It comes in handy when I want to “live on the edge” and try something new. For this idea, I went with something really simple… Grapes.

 

The ingredients are pretty straight forward. The only thing on the list I had not previously purchased was tarragon… but with a little searching around the herb section of the grocery store… I stumbled upon the last container! Whew!!

 

You will need:

1/2 cup seedless grapes

1/4 cup cubed cooked turkey breast

1/4 cup diced celery

1 T plain fat-free greek yogurt

2 tsp fresh tarragon

1 light whole wheat hot dog bun

Toss all ingredients in medium bowl. <—- This is why I love this idea…. SIMPLE! 😉

 

I decided to use romaine lettuce instead of the hot dog bun to save points….. Heaven knows I’ve been getting enough points elsewhere! 😉

With hot dog bun – 5 points plus  (no bun –  3 points plus)

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

    Hey Lexy, you didn’t mention if you liked this or not. It looks and sounds really refreshing and a change from a typical lunch or light dinner. Since I need to go to the store in the morning, I think I’ll get what I need to make this for lunch. Having this as a lettuce wrap sounds better to me than on a carb-filled roll.

      I liked this, next time I will probably use a different seasoning. Not the biggest fan of tarragon, I would probably add pickle relish and a squirt of mustard… Do you have any other recommendations for replacing the tarragon flavor?

    Geez, being Scandinavian by birth, our seasoning of choice is salt and pepper although when trying a recipe for the first time, I’ll follow the recipe as closely as possible and, like you, then decide whether it’s something to try again or tweek to my taste. You have to really ask someone who cooks with fresh herbs what an alternative would be, or if the tarragon is really even necessary. I still think I’ll try this tomorrow but omit the tarragon since I don’t have that in the fridge anyway.

    Lexy: I made the salad this afternoon to have for dinner with baked pork chops and oven roasted green beans. I doubled the recipe so there would be enough for my husband and myself. We both were really pleased with the salad – hooray so it’ll be a keeper. I didn’t purchase any tarragon after reading your comments. I did have fresh basil and fresh oregano in the fridge but decided to not use the fresh herbs at all. I’m not a fan of Greek yogurt so I added some Splenda to the yogurt to cut the tartness. Those were the only two changes I made to the salad; used the purple grapes, celery, and turkey breast. This was a really good salad and there is just enough left over to have as a lettuce wrap for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      That’s awesome Peggy! I’m glad you liked it and I hope I didn’t ruin your feelings about tarragon. 😉 I’m going to leave it out next time also!
