  • Cooking spray or olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vertically sliced red onion or white
  • 1 orange bell pepper sliced vertically in long strips
  • 1 cup canned artichoke hearts drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced tomato you can use fresh or canned; I prefer fresh
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 10 green olives chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 8 Bibb lettuce leaves or just plain iceberg lettuce will do
  • Sriracha sauce if you want a little kick


  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray or olive oil.
  • Add turkey, pepper, and salt to pan; cook for 3 minutes, stirring to crumble.
  • Stir in onion and all ingredients (through green olives); cook for 3-4 minutes or until turkey is done. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cut lettuce in half and break off leaves.
  • To serve: Spoon 1/4 cup turkey mixture (or more) into each lettuce leaf and squeeze fresh lemon or lime juice on top
