Hot Turkey Salad

While surfing the internet one evening a few months ago I came across this recipe. I immediately smiled as it was very similar to a recipe I received about 17 years ago from a dear dear elderly couple in the church parish where I worked as as a secretary. My version called for cooked, diced chicken and this one calls for turkey. So simple, yet I never thought to use leftover turkey for my recipe! Duh! So... for leftover holiday turkey, here is a great recipe to keep. I will always think of Mr. John Fred Davis and his wife when I make it. You can think of me. :)
