Grilled Turkey Teriyaki
Oriental Zucchini (Courgette) and Brown Rice Salad

Cooking time:  30 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

          Thin pork or veal cutlets, or chicken breasts, can be substituted for the turkey.  If you can't find turkey, and want it, buy a breast or tenderloin and either have your butcher slice it or do it yourself.  The turkey only takes a few minutes so you can concentrate on the delicious warm rice salad and still be done quickly..

Grilled Turkey Teriyaki

Total time: 15 minutes
  Turkey cutlets are great for a quick main course.  Paired with a simple Teriyaki marinade, these can be ready in under 10 minutes.... But you have to let the barbecue grill warm up!  Or just quickly sauté in a nonstick skillet.

Oriental Zucchini (Courgette) and Brown Rice Salad

Total time: 30 minutes
   I use 'Uncle Ben's' which is all I can get and it is quick cooking.  It looks like brown Basmati and cooks in 15 minutes.  You could substitute Basmati, if you prefer.  The cooked rice is combined with the sautéed zucchini and a light, oriental vinaigrette just before serving.
