Here’s another delicious recipe I decided to use my leftover Smoked Citrus Turkey for. And I am obsessed! This is one of the most delicious bruschetta recipes I have ever had and trust me, I make a lot of bruschetta! The smokiness of the turkey pairs so well with the mozzarella and the balsamic vinaigrette.
To smoke the turkey I used Spanglish Asadero‘s Citrus seasoning and it was a big hit in my household. I highly recommend you try their spices. Not just for turkey but for all your seasoning needs. Check out their website and you’ll see the entire line they offer.
