Asian Turkey Meatballs

The Asian flavors are a nice change from the usual Italian Style meatballs, and they are healthy to boot. (2 Weight Watchers PointsPlus per meatball.) I love that you can prepare the meatballs in advance. Perfect party food. I made a double batch for our Super Bowl Party this past Sunday and they were a huge hit. The original recipe was for four turkey burgers, but I thought it would work well as a mini-meatball appetizer—and I was right! If you can’t find Lemonaise, mix Light mayo, mustard, salt and pepper and a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice, rice vinegar & pinch of sugar to taste!     I use Thai Sweet Chili sauce instead of the fresh chili. It’s a little sweet so I reduce the amount of sugar. The cucumber salad is delicious served with any Asian-flavored dish. You can use English cucumbers, double the recipe—drain and serve. Make Ahead Tips You can make the meatballs ahead and freeze. Defrost in refrigerator overnight and reheat in the microwave before plating and serving.
