Pesto Grilled Turkey with Dill Potatoes

Grilled Pesto Turkey with Dill Potatoes

This is quick recipe for lunch or light dinner. Pesto is not a traditional paste in Poland, but it is very popular and healty. Turkey has recently replaced chicken for its less additives and hormones – it id definietely more healthy.

This meal is an idea for you. Pesto – unfortunatelly is not home made – but it is good quality Italian jar I get in a local store. Small potatoes are best choice to pair with turkey, but you can as well go with nother side e.g. rice.
