Turkey Salad Appetizer
Cook's notes: This very yummy and tasty salad does double duty during the holiday season. It can be an appetizer spread on a cracker or served as a sandwich spread.
The spread is enough for 4 sandwiches or a dozen appetizers. Greek yogurt is a healthy substitute for mayonnaise. Honey mustard can be substituted for Dijon and then omit the 1 tsp. sugar.

  1. Shoot, I wish I had turkey left-overs. But we had little left and I used mine in wild rice soup.
