Fresh Meals For Spring

When March arrives, it’s like we can finally see the light at the end of winter. At least for those of us living in Canada, winters can be long, cold and dark. That’s when we enjoy all of the comfort foods like hearty soups, stews, casseroles, and curries.

However, as it starts to warm up and the days start to get longer, it’s time to refresh our meal routine to include lighter, fresher fare. That’s why I’m partnering with Lilydale® to make these Turkey Tacos with Mango Salsa, using their Turkey Breast Strips from the freezer case.

Why Frozen Turkey Breast Strips?

These Turkey Breast Strips are uncooked and deliciously seasoned. You can find them in the freezer section and they take just twenty minutes to cook from frozen in the oven. Of course, you can’t beat the convenience, and it’s great to be able to use turkey in everyday meals without having to roast a whole one.

And, they’re not only convenient, but really versatile for (besides tacos) using in salads, sandwiches, soups, and appetizers.

Turkey and Mango, A Fun Twist on Tacos

Tacos are always fun, and even more so when you put a twist on the ingredients. Like these ones with turkey & mango, two ingredients which pair beautifully together. These tacos are a fresh and simple meal that the whole family will love. All that’s needed is to chop and toss the salsa ingredients together while the turkey is in the oven, then assemble and devour.
