9-ingredient Low FODMAP Spicy Cilantro-Lime Turkey Salad is an easy protein-packed meal ready in about 20 minutes. Serve it with or without rice.


  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey (I use 93% lean)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce (or to taste)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onion tops (green parts only)
  • 812 lettuce leaves (I used butter lettuce)

Other Serving Suggestions: Cooked rice, carrot matchsticks


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add turkey and cook, breaking into crumbles, until the edges are brown and the inside is no longer pink.
  2. Add red bell pepper and continue to cook until soft.
  3. Stir in lime juice, sriracha, and fish sauce. Cook for 1-2 minutes to allow for some of the liquid to evaporate. Remove from heat.
  4. Add in cilantro and green onion tops (green parts only). Stir to mix.
  5. Serve warm on top of lettuce leaves. Top with optional carrot matchsticks and/or cooked rice.
