    It's was delicious. I substituted dried cranberries for grapes because I made it the night before and didn't want it to get soggy.
    This was very good. It was easy to make and I loved it.
    i love this so much!
    This is probably the best turkey salad I have ever tasted. WONDEFUL! Instead of plain toasted almonds, I chopped smokehouse almonds to impart a slightly smokey flavor, and it was fantastic. This recipe would also work great with candied pecans. A couple of slices of toasted bread, a slice or two of provolone, and some lettuce, and you will have a first-rate sandwich! You could also service this by itself over a couple of slices of romaine and have a great luncheon's THAT good!
    Great! I used Pecans.grated cheese and put it on chow mien noodles....
    I made this in college and am a pretty inexperienced cook so it took me a pretty long time to get in a rhythm with all of the chopping of various ingredients. It was well worth the time and effort on my part. I was able to eat sandwiches all week! I used roasted chicken instead of turkey and muenster instead of provolone and it turned out really well. I'll have to have a thicker, fancier bread next time I make it.
    This recipe was the best Turkey salad I've ever eaten. My kids normally don't like anything with too many healty ingredients, but this salad was a big hit with my family. I also tried it with roasted turkey, but i like the smoked turkey best.
    it was so good i made it for my family ummm umm ummm they were amazing um
    I'm a college student and often get discouraged in the kitchen, ending with me eating cereal or frozen food! However, I decided to go out on a limb with this one and I'm so glad I did. It is a large enough portion that I think I will be able to eat it for a good six sandwiches, which is great for me since I can't cook as often. I wasn't sure how to smoke a turkey breast : - ( so I ended up rubbing it in olive oil and seasoning it with the kosher salt and pepper before putting it in the oven. That worked out great ;) Also, I had to substitute provolone for meunster and red grapes for green ones. Both substitutions worked out just fine ;) Overall great mix of flavors. However, as in inexperienced chef I'll admit it took me more like 45 minutes to prepare ;)
    it was a party in my mouth!!!!
    Wanting my husband to eat a better lunch at work instead of going to the drive thru. We love this! The added bounus was my 10 year old boy took it in his lunch to school and loved it as well!
    I've eaten this for lunch twice. I don't know if it was the brand of provolone I bought, but I found the cheese a little overpowering. I would definitely make it again, but use a milder cheese and add a little more mayo and possibly some chopped up boiled eggs.
    This made a great light, yet filling turkey sandwich! I think next time I will try adding some apple and chopped alfalfa sprouts, as I think that would add the perfect umph! Thank you Neelys!
    I changed this recipe a little bit by omitting grapes and adding sundried tomatoes instead, and I used crusty french bread instead of whole grain bread . I also used chopped deli sliced turkey meat instead of real turkey and it still came out delicious! The secret is the crunch of the almonds and celery with the creaminess of the mayo and mustard. This is a great base to which you can use your imagination and change to your taste buds. Great recipe!! Even my husband who hates deli meat loved this sandwich.
    I used chicken instead of turkey and it was awesome! I used Ina's recipe for roatsing the chicken (2 large skin on bone in breasts rubbed with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper which are cooked at 350 for about 40 mins). I also added one chopped up Gala apple as I love apple in my chicken salad. It was such a great recipe I will make it again and again. I also found that the longer it sat in the fridge the better it tasted. Although it only lasted 2 days in our fridge!
    The almonds and grapes really give this sandwich a great texture! The smoked turkey gave it a nice flavor, and overall it felt like a perfect light sandwich for company or just an in-home meal. I also tried this sandwich on french sandwich rolls, and that was also delicious. My picky husband gave it a thumbs up!
    Made this for guests of lunch on toasted G/F corn loaf. Everyone really enjoyed it! I had to substitute canned green grapes as was without fresh grapes. Will make this often. Thank you for sharing.
