Crunchy Turkey Salad

Pat Duran


This is a great recipe. I had this recipe at one of my favorite restaurants in Michigan-"Sullivan's " I asked the chef if I could have his recipe for this salad and he generously gave it to me- This recipe is in my third cookbook which is still available at a good price. Thanks to all of you that have purchased it at the discounted price. Hugs,Pat
