Meatball salad

I know that the words "meatball" and "salad" don't usually go together, but trust me, it's good. Plus, the dressing is fantastic!

1 minced onion
1 T minced garlic
1 egg
2 T Tomato paste
1 lb ground turkey
1 T Dijon mustard
2 T finely chopped parsley
1 t dried oregano
½ cup breadcrumbs
Salt pepper
Mix all the ingredients with your hands (gross), and bake at 400 for 20 minutes. 

Lettuce of choice (I always go for spinach)
Shredded carrot
Cherry tomatoes
Sliced olives

You can use anything for the dressing, but I suggest this yogurt based sauce. It tastes like ranch, but is much better (health wise and taste wise).

Lemon Yogurt Sauce
½ cup fat free yogurt
2 T lemon juice
2 T canola oil
1 t minced garlic
2 T minced parsley
Whisk all the ingredients together and serve over salad.
