TURKEY CUTLETS:
8 5-oz. turkey cutlets, pounded thin
1 lb. grated Wild Mushroom and Leek
Jack Cheese 8 3/4" thick slices
Italian bread
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

SALAD:
6 oz. julienne tomatoes
6 oz. cucumber slivers

2 cups chopped baby field greens
1/2 lb. Mezzo Secco cheese, finely grated
4 lemons, juice only
3 oz. extra virgin olive oil

For turkey cutlets: Par-grill turket cutlets on char-grill. Remove turkey from grill and add Jack cheese (2 oz. per cutlet) and bake in a 350°F oven for 6 minutes. Prepare bread slices by brushing with olive oil and toasting in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes.

For salad: Combine tomato, cucumber, onion, carrot, field greens, Mezzo Secco, lemon juice and olive oil. Toss thoroughly, season with salt and pepper and reserve for plating.

Place turkey cutlet on top of toasted bread slices. Cheese should be melted evenly over turkey. Top each slice with chopped salad and garnish with basil oil. Sprinkle with additional Mezzo Secco for garnish.
