  • 1 lb baby red skin potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 2 4 oz all natural Italian turkey sausages, casings removed
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 Gala apples, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tsp minced fresh sage, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 tsp minced fresh thyme, plus additional for garnish
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Pinch sea salt and fresh ground black pepper


  1. Fill a medium pot with 1 to 2 inches water and fit with a steamer basket. Bring water to a boil. To basket, add potatoes and steam until tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a colander until slightly cooled, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, mist a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium. Add sausages and cook, breaking up into bite-size pieces, until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  5. Mist a skillet with additional cooking spray and return to medium heat.
  6. Add bell pepper and sauté, stirring frequently, until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes. Add apples and sauté until soft, 3 to 4 minutes; if needed, mist with additional cooking spray. Add 1 tsp each sage and thyme and sauté for 30 more seconds.
  7. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
  8. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk all vinaigrette ingredients until well combined; set aside.
  9. To apple mixture, add potatoes, sausage and vinaigrette.
  10. Toss gently to coat and garnish with additional sage and thyme.
