Poppin' Turkey Salad

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"A great way to use that leftover turkey! The smoked paprika really makes it pop. If you're looking for a turkey salad that's a little different, you found it! Serve with cranberry sauce. Serve immediately or let sit in fridge for an hour to let the flavors soak in."

The smoked paprika is one of the most important ingredients! If you change anything, don't change that, cause it makes it! :)
