Life is so much easier when you have some simple yet delicious recipes to hand.  Even better is when the meal is full of a range of vitamins and minerals but low in saturated fat and salt.  Not only is my Asian style Turkey salad very simple to make but you can adapt the dish to use either turkey, chicken or duck.  A great way to use up left over poultry or made totally from scratch.  This refreshing and healthy salad is a great meal to make for all the family thanks to the sweetness in the sauce and watermelon it’s a meal that even children will enjoy.

Chop the cucumber, lettuce and watermelon into bite sized pieces and pop into a colander.  Cut the mint and coriander roughly and add this too.  Heat up the hoisin in a wok, pull apart the turkey into bite sized pieces and add that and the cashews to the wok.  Toss to coat well then turn off the heat, add in the ingredients from the colander, mix quickly and serve.  This should be served immediately to prevent the lettuce wilting.
