Often time, we have this leftover Turkey staring right into our face each time we open the freezer and each time, we keep wondering what to do with the leftover in your freezer. Don’t trash it! It’s time you bring it out for good use. Making this amazing Turkey sandwich is a good way to re-introduce more flavor into these leftover Turkeys easily.

I coarsely chopped the turkey to make it a bit chunkier. However, a food processor can be used to achieve a less chunky result especially if you are planning to serve this as a cracker topping; it would be more like a tuna-salad consistency which is more suited for spreading. Also, to give the dressing plenty of kick, I used some lemon juice which can be replaced with lime juice or vinegar.
This Turkey salad is very easy to put together making it perfect for everyone regardless of your cooking skills; you can also adjust this recipe to fit your body needs:
