Herb Roasted Turkey Recipe for Thanksgiving

This turkey is roasted with a mixture of herbs and olive oil under the skin and all over the bird. Use small amounts of dried herbs along with the fresh herbs for more flavor. The pictured roast turkey was made with a combination of fresh dill, rosemary, and chives, along with about 1/2 teaspoon each of dried leaf marjoram and thyme. A Cajun seasoning rub would be delicious as well.
