The classic Cobb salad is the loose inspiration behind this quick, well-balanced meal. Crisp spinach, tangy cheese, succulent poultry, and caramelized pears combine to make one delicious dish.
The pears add a nice sweetness, while the turkey is a delicious alternative to everyday chicken. If you dislike blue cheese, replace it with a creamy, crumbled goat cheese. To start you weekend with this recipe,
- 2 turkey breast tenderloins (1 to 1-1/4 lb.)
- 1 tsp. dried sage, crushed
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 6-oz. pkg. fresh baby spinach
- 1 large pear, cored and thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
- Horizontally split tenderloins to make four 1/2-inch-thick steaks.
- Rub turkey with sage; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In extra-large skillet, cook steaks in 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat 14 to 16 minutes or until no longer pink (170 degrees F), turning once. (Reduce heat to medium if turkey browns too quickly.) Remove from skillet.
- Add spinach to skillet. Cook and stir until just wilted.
- Meanwhile, in small skillet cook pear slices in remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium to medium-high heat, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until tender and lightly browned.
- Serve steaks with spinach and pears. Top with blue cheese.
