Big-Batch Turkey Salad Recipe

We served this delicious salad at a church luncheon along with a variety of homemade muffins and a dessert. The meal was a big hit, and many of the women attending asked for the salad recipe. If you prefer, use diced cooked chicken instead of turkey. -Pat Swaney, Lima, Ohio
