Meatballs get a Greek spin with ground turkey, green onion, spinach and fresh dill. Served over a bed of Greek salad with bell peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers, this recipe screams all things fresh. Try topping with a little Greek yogurt, adding olives or sprinkling with fresh herbs.
Nutrition Tip: Spinach provides the body with an ample amount of vitamin K, which is vital for healthy blood clotting. Cooking raw spinach down gives you the opportunity to sneak it into dips, eggs, and even oatmeal!
