These herbs might sound fit for a cocktail, but they can add a bright, refreshing flavor to your turkey as well. Go from mixologist to chef and spritz up your next meal! This turkey tonic will be gobbled right up.

INGREDIENTS
⅓ cup paprika
¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoons cayenne
2 tablespoons salt, if desired
4 teaspoons black pepper
3 pounds JENNIE-O® All Natural* Turkey Breast
1½ cups packed fresh mint leaves
¼ cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
3 oranges, segmented
peanuts, chopped and toasted, if desired

DIRECTIONS
1) In large bowl, mix rub ingredients: paprika, sugar, cayenne, salt and pepper. Coat turkey breast evenly with rub. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight. Preheat smoker to 300°F. Smoke until well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Slice turkey breast
2) To make mint pesto: Combine mint, olive oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice and zest in food processor and pulse until smooth.
3) Peel orange and cut into segments. Heat large skillet on medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add a single layer of nuts. Do not add any oil or cooking spray – the nuts have enough oils on their own to cook. Stir frequently until nuts turn golden brown. Remove from pan. To assemble, top turkey with orange segments, a drizzle of mint pesto, and toasted peanuts.
