Harvest Turkey Salad (yum!)

For a picnic lunch (to bring to the canning demonstration get-together), my Mom asked me to prepare a quick and easy dish. I thought turkey salad sandwiches would be perfect, so I put together a recipe that's super simple, low on sodium, and still flavorful!

1. Chop about 3 stalks of celery (3/4 cup) into chunky slices...

2. Then peel and dice two "Washington" apples (Makes a little under 2 cups)

Set aside with the celery!

3. Now for the fun part--Take 1 (fully cooked) turkey leg, and chop into chunky pieces. Make sure to leave out the thin bones and skin!

This is what it should look like after chopping (and tasting?lol) I measured 2 cups of meat.

4. In a medium sized bowl, mix together all 3 ingredients!!

5. Add 1/2 cup of Mayo and mix into the salad...

6. Now for the spices! In a tiny dish, combine 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp rubbed sage, 1/4 tsp thyme, and 1/4 tsp white (or black) pepper.

Add the spices into the mixture...

And you're done!! It makes about 3 cups of Turkey salad, so you may want to double it if you have a large family. (Or *cough* if your family eats 2 sandwiches each, like we do! *cough* lol)

The sandwiches were delicious, and WITHOUT any salt! I've been trying to use herb-alternatives, and I think it worked out well! I'll probably make this again with the left-over turkey from Thanksgiving Day!
