Hey there! It’s Rina from I Thee Cook again. I hope everyone had a happy Turkey Day! Do you have an abundance of leftover turkey? I had quite a bit myself. Now there are a bazillion leftover turkey recipes. Everything from turkey potpie, turkey soup, turkey casserole, turkey this or turkey that. Since I have already made them a bazillion times to I opted for this salad as an amazing sandwich.

Now you can make this with chicken as well. But if you are eating it as a sandwich you must put it on this bread! It makes the sandwich. I don’t know why or how it just does. Perfect for lunch or dinner, it’s a total time saver and a cinch to whip up. This salad would be perfect as an appetizer on cracker or toasts as well.
