Instructions

  1. Mix the turkey meat, apples, and spices in a bowl. Form into patties, two per serving.
  2. Fry the patties in a skillet for 4-5 minutes on each side, on medium-high heat until cooked through.
  3. While the patties are cooking, mix the greens, seeds, vinegar, and olive oil in a bowl.
  4. Serve patties with the salad on the side.

Tips

Feel free to add other seasonings to the ground meat, such as onion powder, and/or ground fennel seed.

If you use a tougher kale, like curly kale, you can tenderize the leaves by drizzling the oil and vinegar on top and massaging firmly with your hands. Then, top with seeds.

You can use whatever seeds you'd like on the side salad. You can also drizzle the greens with a squeeze of lemon if you wish.
