  1. In a large salad bowl whisk together vinegar and mustard. Add olive oil while whisking. Add salad greens, cucumbers, and tomatoes on top. Wait to toss until right before serving.
  2. Heat a wok or large skillet with first part of cooking oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and bell peppers and saute until soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt.
  3. Add turkey and cook, breaking it apart, to get it started cooking, 4 to 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and spice blend and cook everything together until turkey is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Season with some salt and pepper and set aside, covered to keep warm.
  4. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add second part of cooking oil and then crack eggs into heated oil. Cook eggs on one side until whites are set and yolks are still a bit runny, 4 to 6 minutes. (If you’d like the eggs more cooked, flip and cook on the other side.)
  5. Divide turkey saute between serving plates and top each with a fried egg. Add some hot sauce (not in ingredients list) if you'd like. Enjoy salad on the side.
