Love this salad. It can be served in pita pockets or on a bed of lettuce. I eat it often. If you don't have turkey, chicken will do.

Typically, I make this using nearly a full 6-ounce container of lemon yogurt. However, the original magazine recipe called for the mayonnaise-yogurt mix. It's good either way.

How to Make TURKEY PITA SALAD

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl, combine turkey, cranberries, celery, onion, nuts, yogurt (or mayonnaise-yogurt) and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Cut a thin slice from tops of 4 pitas and carefully open the pocket. Line each with 1/4 of the lettuce and 1/4 of the turkey mixture (cheese optional).
  3. NOTE: This is better if refrigerated a few hours. Gives the cranberries time to plump a little.
