This turkey salad is my original creation. I got a craving the day after Thanksgiving last year and spent the afternoon creating this delicious turkey salad.

This was really REALLY good!! I'm eating a sandwhich now as we speak!! lol I did a few things differently. I used a little more mayo (we like ours smothered!) I used a LOT more bacon... probably about 4 or 5 crumbled slices... I also used sweet relish instead of dill (because that was all I had) but I think I would have liked it better with dill... but it's still not a deal breaker! I used a little more cheese and added some franks red hot sauce because I put that on everything... I also used hot pepper rings and it had a wonderful flavor!! I love this! Read More

Not bad though very different. A little too much mustard for my taste and not quite enough dressing. Added a couple of tablespoons of vidalia onion dressing (it's a little sweet) and that seemed to take care of both issues. Also added a little diced onion for crunch and flavor. Husband liked it but not sure I won't do the traditional next time. Read More

This was delicious with lettuce and spinach on a wrap but there was way too much mustard for my taste. I did use dijon mustard but it was incredibly overwhelming. I would cut the amount to 1 T. Read More

This was SO yummy. Because I'm changing the way I eat cut back on the mayonnaise by almost half and used lowfat mayonnaise. I used a 2% sharp cheddar and dijon mustard. Because I had no relish I used two large chopped garlic dills. I actually made this early this morning and left it to sit until lunch. My kids and I devoured it. I had theirs on whole wheat bread but I ate mine wrapped in Bibb lettuce. I think this could use a little chopped celery or onion but as is we enjoyed this and there were no leftovers. Read More

This was excellent and different. I couldn't imagine the pepperoncini and bacon with the turkey but they gave it a nice kick. Will definitely make again. Read More

Wow this is so different. We loved it because it didn't taste like the rest of Thanksgiving! I served it on a large loaf of Ciabatta bread with dried cranberries -- with a little side salad it's a meal! Read More

Oh my gosh this looks great for that after TG dinner or any time. I just wish I had Turkey to try the recipe. Just by the photo and recipe alone I just know this is a winner. I do agree to use more mayo bacon and less mustard. Thanks for the great idea. Read More

added chopped celery for some crunch. Can be eaten as a sandwich or a salad. Doesn't really make 8 servings more like 4 but oh soooo good! Read More
