When it comes to Thanksgiving, leftover turkey is definitely a blessing! There are so many ways to transform leftover roasted turkey, or grilled turkey breast, into easy healthy meals like this simple and scrumptious turkey salad!
I love using homemade Greek yogurt combined with fresh apples, grapes and dried cranberries because it not only gives this turkey salad a creamy tang, but also a healthy dose of probiotics in every delicious bite!
