Step 1To prep the Citrus Turkey Cutlets, combine all ingredients except turkey in a food processor. Blend to a coarse puree.
Step 2Place turkey in a gallon freezer bag. Add marinade.
Step 3Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
Step 4To prepare the salad, make the vinaigrette. Combine the red wine vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir until salt is dissolved. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Reserve.
Step 5Remove the turkey cutlets from the marinade and grill over medium heat for about 4 minutes per side, or until an internal temperature of 165¬∞F is reached on a meat thermometer.
Step 6Toss the salad ingredients, including field greens, avocado, grape tomatoes, and red onion, with enough vinaigrette to lightly coat. Pile the salad in the center of plate.
