FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Adrienne Richards, National Turkey Federation 202-898-0100 ext. 7223, arichards@turkeyfed.org Summer is sizzling and so is the grill with a new healthy and easy recipe from National Turkey Federation (NTF). NTF’s how-to turkey cooking video on www.eatturkey.com features Gena Knox, co-founder of Fire & Flavor, who dishes up Herb Marinated Grilled Turkey with Panzanella Salad. “The herb marinated grilled turkey is a simple dish that uses all fresh seasonal ingredients,” said Knox. “I’ve found that by sticking with fresh ingredients and great seasonings, you can trim things down a bit and still be blown away by the incredible rich tastes.” In the video, Knox whisks up an easy marinade with garlic, lemon and fresh herbs, such as parsley, thyme and rosemary, which is then poured over turkey cutlets. After marinating for at least 15 minutes, the cutlets are then grilled to perfection. Knox’s mission of providing quality, simplicity and great taste is apparent in this grilled turkey. Her passion for Southern cooking is also noticeable in the video as she layers the turkey cutlets with a Panzanella Salad that is traditionally an Italian dish. Cubed Ciabatta bread is toasted and tossed with tomatoes, cucumber, red onion and topped with turkey bacon. “Knox prepares and presents a delectable meal combination that highlights the versatility of turkey,” said Sherrie Rosenblatt, NTF’s vice president of marketing and communications. “At-home chefs can take advantage of this easy recipe, while providing their friends and family with a tasteful summer dish.” NTF’s turkey cooking video is available at http://www.eatturkey.com/consumer/cooking-videos-2.html.
