Grilled Turkey with Bulgar Wheat Greek Salad

The original recipe for this uses chicken but when I checked what meat I had got out of the freezer it was in fact turkey. It's the same thing really! So I used the turkey instead and it was lovely, it didn't dry out at all and the addition of both the turkey and the bulgar to a Greek salad was delicious.

(Serves 4)

225g bulgar wheat
25g butter
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp garlic powder
4 turkey steaks
1½ tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
300g tomatoes, roughly chopped
handful pitted black olives
1 red onion, finely sliced
100g feta cheese, crumbled
small bunch mint leaves, chopped
juice and zest ½ lemon

Preheat the grill.

Cook the bulgar wheat following the pack instructions, then rinse in cold water and drain thoroughly.

Toss the turkey steaks in 2 tsp of the olive oil with the chilli powder, garlic powder and some seasoning. Lay in a hot griddle pan and cook for 7-8 mins each side or until cooked through.

Next, tip the tomatoes, olives, onion, feta and mint into a bowl. Toss in the cooked bulgar wheat. Stir through the remaining olive oil, lemon juice and zest, and season well. Serve with the turkey on top.
