Very yummy and nutritious! I increased the celery and left off the almonds. I'll try it, too, with chicken and apples or a combination of fruits. I needed one more recipe for the 2 cups of Thanksgiving turkey that was left! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published

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 salad...it's THAT good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great! I used Pecans.grated cheese and put it on chow mien noodles.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published
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. item not reviewed by moderator and published

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 ;) item not reviewed by moderator and published
