  1. 1/2 cup Quinoa
  2. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  3. 8 ounces Turkey Breast Meat
  4. 12 ounces green beans, trimmed, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  5. 2 cups fresh yellow corn kernels (cut from 2 to 3 ears of corn)
  6. 3 green onions, thinly sliced (about 3/4 cup)
  7. 1 tablespoon minced fresh marjoram
  8. 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

Cook quinoa in medium saucepan of boiling salted water until just tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain; cool.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in heavy medium skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle turkey with salt and pepper. Add turkey to skillet; cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 8 minutes per side. Cool, then cut into 1/2- to 3/4-inch cubes.
