Simple Turkey Salad

Simple Turkey Salad recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

With just a little bit of turkey remaining after our Thanksgiving feast, this was a quick and tasty lunch for the kids and me. My boys enjoyed their salad by itself, with some crackers on the side. I had mine on a plate of spring mix with chopped tomatoes and cucumbers. This would also make a terrific sandwich!
