  • 1 turkey breast cutlet (about 1/3 pound), 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce
  • 2 thin slices avocado (optional)
  • 1/2 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 small ripe tomato, cored and chopped
  • 2 thin slices onion, separated into rings (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt
