Versatile Turkey Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing


You could make this salad using pasta or potatoes, chicken instead of turkey and whatever vegetables or salad greens you have to hand.  This is a fab salad that you can serve hot or cold, great for picnics or a speedy weeknight supper.  This post is an entry for BritMums Summer Turkey Recipe Challenge in association with Lean on Turkey.

  1. Good Afternoon Michelle, This looks like a lovely evening meal. I like the thought of the turkey and vegetables being mixed with potatoes. I think I would also mix these ingredients with bulgar wheat.
    Lovely recipe.
    Best Wishes

    1. What a fab suggestion Daphne, I'll have to give that a go. I think I have some bulgar wheat in the depths of my store cupboard.
