      Made this with left over turkey breast & thigh meat & really enjoyed the toasted nuts that were included & the crunch that the chopped water chestnuts provided! Easy to prepare & definitely a winning recipe! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      This a first rate salad! The dressing reminds me of a dark cherry balsamic that Nordstrom's sells! I subbed celery for the water chesnuts. The toasted pecans added so much flavor. I was trying to disguise some over-cooked rotisserie turkey and this made it wonderful! I also used the dressing by itself with greens and feta and it was really good, too. Note: I pureed canned whole cranberry sauce in the dressing. Thanks so much, Sharon! Roxygirl

      I used low fat sour cream instead of mayonnaise. I also double the nuts. The vinaigrette would be good on a spinach salad also.
