This is very good served over a bed of lettuce or as a sandwich. It's a good way to use up left over turkey at Thanksgiving. I am basing prep and cook time on using left over meat. Cook time is actually the chill time.

Huh. I don't know if my tastes are changing or if this recipe is just really good. I could've sworn I didn't like chicken salad sandwiches before I made this in May. Now, I actually find myself craving it from time to time. Thank you!

I liked it but I had to add some more seasoning, I thought it was a bit bland. I added some dill, cayenne, garlic and used onion powder instead of onion salt.

I make my turkey salad the same way, with the exception of never had added poultry seasoning, we like it!! I also add boiled eggs. Thanks for posting, it's a keeper.
