  1. Nice recipe. Thank you Robyn.

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

  3. I love the use of leftovers in this!

  4. 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!

  5. I see apples in the picture but not included in the recipe?

  6. Sounds good…wish I had some turkey!! Did you add a red apple? Pinning it!!
