For salad:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey see note
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 heaping cups baby spinach
  • 4 cups hearty greens
  • 1 cup canned artichokes chopped
  • 1 small red onion finely diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup diced cucumbers
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

For Creamy Lemon Dressing:

  • ½ cup greek yogurt dairy-free greek yogurt is ok
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon water more as needed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet. Once hot add ground turkey, salt, cumin and pepper. Cook until no pink remains. Once cooked through, add in spinach and cook until the spinach has just wilted, about 2 minutes. Shut off the heat and let cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile, make the dressing: Add all ingredients to a jar or small bowl and whisk together. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding in more water or lemon juice as necessary to thin the dressing.
  • Assemble the bowls: Divide lettuce, artichokes, red onion, tomatoes, cucumbers and feta among four bowls. Divide the turkey mixture on top, then drizzle over 1-2 tablespoons of dressing. Serve immediately. Or see notes about meal prep.


Have leftover shredded or cubed turkey or chicken? That will work perfectly here!
This salad is great to make for meal prep, with a few modifications.  If you prefer to eat this salad with warm ground turkey, go ahead and meal prep this salad to have a separate container for the salad components and another for the turkey and spinach, that way the meat can be heated up on its own. And of course, with most salads, you’ll want to keep dressing separate and add right before serving.
