Turkey Meatball Caesar Salad (from Good Food Magazine September 2013)
500g pack lean minced turkey
1 onion, finely chopped
small pack chives snipped
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 tbsp grated pecorino or Parmesan, plus extra to serve (optional)
2 shakes Tabasco sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 small ciabatta roll, chopped or torn into chunks
squeeze lemon juice
2 Cos lettuces
Arrange the meat balls in a single layer in a roasting tin and cook for 10 mins. Remove, turn the turkey balls and arrange the bread chunks in between. Cook for a further 10 mins.
Meanwhile, tip the rest of the buttermilk into a bowl with the remaining Parmesan, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and the lemon juice. Season and mix. Put the lettuce on top, toss together just before serving and divide between plates. Top with some meatballs and baked croutons, then sprinkle with chives. Serve with extra Parmesan, if you like.
