Chicken or Turkey Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by keen5

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!
