    This was absolutely delicious. This will be my turkey salad recipe from now on!!!!! A real keeper. I actually used dried cranberries instead of dried cherries but kept everything else the same. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

    This is so good, thank you for a great recipe. I think next time I will skip the pita bread and serve it on lettuce. I love the sweet and a little spice, great flavor!

    This is a delicious and different way to make turkey salad... although I actually used chicken because that's what I had on hand! I also had to make a few other changes. I used soy yogurt and regular ground ginger because I could find any ginger in a jar at my tiny grocery store. I also omitted the onion and pepper flakes due to personal taste. Finally, I had to use dried cranberries because at the last minute I realized I had no cherries. I can't wait to try this again with the turkey and cherries, although it was excellent this way, too! I served it with couscous and it was a fantastic light dinner.
