june's thai salad with turkey

a recipe by

This Thai Turkey Salad is a great way to use up left over turkey, plus it makes a great main course salad for a hot summer day. The original recipe used half as much dressing. I found this to be too dry for my liking so I have doubled it. If you prefer your salad on the dry side, use half the dressing ingredients. You can substitute chicken for turkey if preferred, or substitute any salad green for the spinach.
