A delicious turkey meal shouldn't only be reserved for Thanksgiving. In fact, I like to serve quick-cooking turkey breasts all year long. For tonight's dinner I suggest this scrumptious turkey and spinach salad. An easy sauce is made from orange juice and crispy ham adds a light crunch to the meal. Serve with a soft red wine or robust rosé for a special weeknight dinner. To look at the recipe please, read more
