Tropical Turkey Tenderloins

Print PrintShare with Friends


I adopted this recipe from Zaar and after making it the way it was originally posted; I altered it so it would have more of a tropical flavor. The salsa really makes this quick and easy dish look and taste wonderful. I served the turkey with a side of roasted sweet potatoes and a salad. The leftovers make the best turkey salad sandwiches I have ever eaten ? so make more than you will eat if you want sandwiches the next day!
