"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."

"I used chicken for turkey and vanilla yogurt for the plain yogurt and had a wonderful salad for our sandwiches. This is excellent!"
