Thai Basil Turkey is one of those fun, easy dinners you can throw together fairly quickly, especially if you prepare the garnishes ahead of time. And be generous with those garnishes!Jump to Recipe
I love recipes that combine opposing flavors – sweet/salty, fresh/cooked, etc. It just makes the dish more interesting. This recipe, when garnished generously, combines fresh, cool cucumber with comforting, creamy turkey, zingy lime, salty fish sauce and pungent green onions. It gets bonus points for being easy to make, and it comes together quickly! We have it often on a week day when I’ve prepared the garnishes ahead.
If you like, you can substitute ground chicken for the turkey. I prefer the flavor of turkey, but that’s totally your call.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
