Diabetic, Low-fat Mandarin Turkey Salad with Buttermilk-herb Dressing

1 can (about 14 ozs.) fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/4 lbs. turkey tenderloins, cut in half lengthwise
1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/2 lb. (about 8 cups.) salad greens

florets, red and green or yellow peppers, carrots and red onion

Prepare Buttermilk-Herb dressing and set aside. Place broth in a
medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Add turkey and

greens on individual plates. Divide turkey evenly over salad greens.
Arrange vegetables and orange segments around turkey; drizzle each
serving with 2 Tbsp. buttermilk-herb dressing. Makes 6 servings.
