Zesty Turkey Salad

The decorations are packed away, the tree is down, but there may remain a remnant of the holidays, frozen in your freezer- left-over turkey. Here’s a recipe to take that ‘ol turkey to another level: Zesty Turkey Salad.

Spicy pickles, horseradish, and cumin come together in one taste sensation! And the recipe only has two steps! Ok, there is a little dicing, etc. but on the whole, its a snap.

You can serve it on lettuce leaves as I show here,or thinly slice a baguette and make mini sandwiches ready for lunch. I prepared this recipe for 8 so you’ll have plenty protein to munch on for the week. Watch it, though, it may disappear faster than you anticipate!
