Turkey‎ (Chicken)‎ Salad‎ Recipe:‎

One of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftovers! Yesterday Turkey became today Turkey Salad.

If‎ you‎ have‎ a whole‎ bunch‎ of‎ turkey‎ leftover‎ after‎ Thanksgiving‎, here‎ is‎ a straightforward‎ and‎ tasty‎ recipe‎ that‎ will‎ make‎ the‎ turkey‎ much‎ more‎ enjoyable. If you like me, I am not a turkey person until it's leftover, and I can make a different dish out of it. I love to use Turkey for the hash, and the hubby love to make this Turkey salad; when I tell you, it is one of my favorite leftover foods that he makes. This a great meal for lunch, easy and fast to make. I hope you guys enjoy Dwayne’s Turkey Salad Recipe.
