• ½ pound fresh sugar snaps or snow peas
  • 10 slices deli mesquite or smoked turkey breast
  • 3 to 4 Texas Red Grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
  • Boston lettuce leaves
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries

*Strawberry Poppy Seed Vinaigrette recipe below

Snap off the stem ends of the sugar snaps or snow peas. Plunge sugar snaps into boiling water for 1 minute, drain, then plunge into ice water. Drain and pat dry. Roll up turkey slices and cut crosswise into halves. On each of 4 dinner plates, first arrange 2 sugar snaps, so ends are about 1-inch from rim of plate. About halfway from the center of each plate, place 2 grapefruit sections and a turkey roll next to the sugar snaps, and continue alternating sugar snaps, grapefruit and turkey. In the center of each plate, place 1 or 2 small lettuce leaves. Wash berries and cut into halves, arranging about 6 to 8 strawberry halves over lettuce. Serve immediately with Strawberry Poppy Seed vinaigrette.
