Meatball Salad?! Now that’s a salad that pretty much everyone can get behind. Using our Honey Mustard Salad Kit with Spinach as a base, the honey-mustard dressing brings all the flavors together, making a wonderfully satisfying meal. This recipe by Cosette’s Kitchen makes plenty of meatballs so you’ll have some left over for later.
MAKE THE MEATBALLS
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
Place ground turkey in a large bowl and set aside.
In a small non-stick pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add diced onions and cook for 2-3 minutes, then add Italian seasoning, pepper and salt.
Allow mixture to cook for another 3-4 minutes until onions are translucent. Add minced garlic. Set aside to cool.
Add feta, sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, eggs and panko to the ground turkey. Mix to combine well.
Once the onion mixture is cooled, add it to the turkey mixture and mix well. See note below to taste seasoning – add additional salt if needed.*
Form your meatballs using a cookie scoop, about 1.5″ in diameter and place on parchment lined sheet pan. You should have about 45 meatballs total and spread out on 2 sheet pans.
Bake in upper 1/3 of pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.
Remove and let come to room temperature.
MAKE THE SALAD
Remove greens from Earthbound Farm Organic Honey Mustard Kit and place in a large bowl.
Add dressing to taste and toss to evenly distribute the dressing.
Plate greens on a platter/plate, top with the included dried cranberries and slivered almonds and finally a few meatballs.
Be sure to let your onion mixture cool down before adding to the ground turkey and eggs. We don’t want to cook the eggs or meat too early!
To test for flavor and saltiness of your meat, grab a small piece and throw it into a pan to cook quickly or heat in microwave for 20-30 second until cooked. Sample and know if you need to add more salt to your mixture.
