"What a delicious sandwich filling. The only change I made was to serve it on homemade hamburger buns as we don't care for rye bread. I also waited until just before serving to stir in the cashews. I served this at a bridal shower luncheon and it was a big hit and my family enjoyed the leftovers! I'll be watching for turkey breasts to go on sale so I can make this often. For this occasion, I cooked my turkey breast overnight in the crockpot and that worked very well. Excellent recipe!"

"This recipe was republished in the December/January, 2015, issue of Simple & Delicious, where I saw it, and with an abundance of turkey left over from Thanksgiving, I just had to give it a whirl.. I'm glad I did. I have made lots of turkey salad in my many years, but the addition of apricots and cashews brought a whole new dimension to this recipe, and served on pumpernickel bread instead of as a salad on a plate, made it extra special. This Field Editor will make this recipe again."

"Nice sandwich. I used Multigrain Deli Slims for the bread. I think I iwll add extra nuts and apricots next time, as the bites with that combo in it were the best.

Thanks for sharing."
