    Using a strainer or colander, rinse the rice under cold, running water, then drain and transfer to a small saucepan. Add water and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.
    1 cup basmati rice
    16 fl oz (2 cups) water
  • 2
    Wash and dry the fresh produce.
    1 pint grape tomatoes

    Once the liquid comes to a boil, stir the mixture, cover the saucepan, and reduce the heat to low. Cook the rice until the liquid is fully absorbed, 15 to 18 minutes. Once done, remove the rice from the heat and let it stand, still covered, for 5 minutes.
  • 4
    Quarter the grape tomatoes and transfer to a medium salad bowl (that will hold the pico de gallo salsa).
  • 5
    Using a knife, shave the cilantro leaves off the stems at a downward angle, working away from your body; discard the stems and finely chop the leaves. Add to the salad bowl.
  • 6
    Juice the lime and add to the salad bowl.
  • 7
    Trim off and discard the ends of the onion and remove the outer layer; small dice the onion into ¼-inch pieces. Transfer one ½ of the diced onion to the salad bowl and the other ½ to a small bowl.
    1 medium red onion

    1 tsp oregano
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp salt

    Once the skillet is hot, add the remaining onion; cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • 11
    Add the ground turkey to the skillet; cook, breaking apart with a spoon, until browned and crumbly, 3 to 4 minutes.
    1 ½ lb ground turkey

    ½ tsp salt
    ¼ tsp black pepper
