Since it has definitely has a different taste from just reheating the turkey leftovers, it really helps you to not feel like you have a never ending supply of turkey that you’ll never make it through. Well, at least it does for me. If you are like my family, you may even look forward to having those leftovers just so you can make this turkey salad.

    This looks heavenly – I’m thinking in a wrap or on top of some fresh greens sounds like the perfect after-Thanksgiving lunch!

    I love the use of leftovers in this!

    I make a chicken salad similar to this. In our efforts to be healthier, I use Greek Yogurt instead of mayo and we can’t really tell the difference. It’s just as delicious!
