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.
