Serves 4


1 lb ground turkey

1 ½ tsps chili powder

1 small head of cabbage, shredded, or 10oz bag pre-shredded

1 large apple (I prefer granny smith but any will work), thinly sliced and slices cut in half

½ cup chopped cilantro

Juice of 1 lime

2 tbsps olive oil

1 tbsp honey

Generous sprinkle of salt

Generous sprinkle of pepper

8 taco shells/wraps – I prefer flour for this but hard or soft corn would work, as well

Cotija cheese, grated or crumbled, optional


Warm a skillet over medium heat.  Add the ground turkey to it and give the turkey a sprinkle of salt.  If your turkey is especially lean, put a little oil into the pan first, but for the most part you shouldn’t need it.  Add the chili powder and break up the meat as it cooks. Once it is cooked through (6-8 minutes), take it off the heat and set it aside.  In a bowl, mix well the oil, lime juice, honey, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Add the cabbage and apple to the bowl and toss so they are well coated with the dressing.  To serve, pile the turkey and slaw on 2 shells/wraps per person. Top with a sprinkle of the cheese.
