Hummus and Turkey Flatbreads with Romaine

No one like to cook elaborate and heavy meals during the summer.  That's why this quick and easy flatbread salad combo is so appealing.  It take no time to make, and it's filling, light, and oh so delicious.  Today's recipe is a Greek(ish) version of a flatbread salad.  It features hummus and seasoned ground turkey as a base and is topped with salad goodies such as dressed romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a sprinkle to feta.  It's a Mediterranean summer feast the whole family will enjoy!

This is perfect for either lunch or dinner.  We've made it several times this summer and just love it for it's fresh and tasty take on a salad pizza.


What Ingredients do I need?

  • ground turkey
  • naan bread - individual sized

  • olive oil
  • hummus
  • apple cider vinegar
  • Dijon mustard
  • romaine lettuce
  • cherry tomatoes
  • Persian cucumbers
  • feta cheese

Substitutions and Variations

  • Use ground lamb, chicken or beef instead of turkey
  • Add roasted red peppers to the salad
  • Add black olives to the salad
  • Use lemon juice for the apple cider vinegar
  • Don't care for feta, leave it off or try ricotta salata, or goat cheese
  • Use store bought pizza dough instead of naan
  • Try a flavored hummus

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • Watch the naan closely as they can burn quickly.
  • This can be cooked on an outdoor grill as well.
  • Make the salad mixture while the flatbread are cooking.
  • Serve right away so you get that mix of cold and hot ingredients.
  • Try baby naan for cute appetizers  - or use the largest naan and cut into portions.
  • Try garlic naan for extra flavor.
  • If using pizza dough, spread melted butter seasoned with garlic powder around the edges for extra flavor.
