Marshall Field's Turkey Salad Oriental

"I used to love getting this salad at Dayton's in Minneapolis. Had the recipe for 10 years, and then seem to have misplaced it in a move. Luckily, the Marhsall Field's people came through for me, and I'm posting it here for safe-keeping. It IS delicious! Many have asked me for the recipe!"

    Fantastic Salad!! We loooooved it. I think next time I would only use a 1/2 cup of lite soy sauce though. I used 3/4 cup of regular soy sauce and found it a bit salty. I added a 1/4 cup of water to tone the salt down. Other than that...the recipe was great!! Oh....and I used chicken breast instead of turkey. It's what I had on hand. Will be making again for sure!!!!!! Can't wait to take it to a party. Thanks for the recipe.

    LOVE this salad! Only thing is I don't love it with the turkey. I think it gets too mushy when refrigerated. Sub chicken instead. Also really like a lot of snow peas- delicious!

    Delicious! I took this to work to a birthday celebration and it was well recieved. The sauce is yummy! I rarely stray from a recipe the first try but there were not enough veggies to suit me so I doubled the carrots and added snow peas, celery, yellow pepper, bean sprouts and spinach. I "steamed" the carrots, celery and snow peas by placing them in the colander pouring the hot pasta over top and then running cold water over all. Also, I did not use sesame seeds due to dietary issues so replaced some of the oil with sesame oil and passed the sesame seeds for sprinkling to those who had no dietary restrictions. My coworkers loved it and DH loved the leftovers and wants to have this again soon! Thanks so much for posting Sallie H.

    Yummy! I'm always looking for ways to use up the leftover turkey, and this one will be a must next time I cook a bird.

Cooking is a passion for me. I love it, and frequently entertain making my guests guinea pigs. I try to get rid of cookbooks, but I just can't, they're too personal! I have loved recipezaar, and the variety it offers. I teach special ed, and looking forward to a great meal certainly helps the day go faster. Our 4 yr. old daughter loves lobster, shrimp, zucchini, tomatoes, etc. Wonder where that comes from?
