  • 1 (14- to 16-oz) bag frozen peas
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 thin puffed rice cakes
  • 12 slices APPLEGATE NATURALS® Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
  • 2 radishes, very thinly sliced


  1. To make the smashed peas, bring a small pot of salted water to a boil. Add the peas and cook until bright green, about 2 minutes. Drain well. Reserve ⅓ cup peas for garnish then transfer remainder to a food processor and pulse until a coarse mash forms.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and stir in olive oil, lemon juice and pepper. Season to taste with salt.
  3. Spread the smashed peas evenly over the rice cakes. Top each with 1 slice of turkey, a few slices of radish and a few whole peas. Serve at once.
