June Mullins credits her sister for sharing this winning recipe, picked up at their Missouri State Fair several years ago. "Cucumbers, apples and a touch of curry make this salad distinctive," assesses June who lives near Livonia.
Forever on the lookout for good simple dishes to prepare, I tried this delicious salad while on a trip. It's lovely with all the colors and textures, and satisfying with a mixture of turkey, fruits and vegetables. The tangy raspberry dressing is irresistible.

I first tasted this tempting hot turkey salad at a club dinner. Now I serve it at home, and there are never any leftovers. The popover "bowl" is a unique way of serving that always draws comments.

Our congregation was holding a luncheon at which I was helping, and we were supposed to use turkey left over from the church's Thanksgiving supper.
I thought back to a salad I had tasted years before, then tried to come up with something similar. Everyone liked it so much that—at another church luncheon—we cooked a turkey for the specific purpose of making my salad.
There was only one problem with this salad—as usual, I just created it as I was going along. When the other ladies asked me for the recipe. I had to scramble to put something on paper!
At home, I make this whenever we have leftover turkey (it's also good with chicken). My husband and I have four grown daughters and seven grandchildren. We're grain and beef farmers.
When you're looking for a cold salad to serve, turn here! Just combine the ingredients—eliminating the crushed potato chips—and serve chilled instead. Whether you serve it hot or cold, it's delicious.—Jane Payne, Twin Falls, Idaho
My mother-in-law made this salad for a shower she was hosting and shared the recipe with me. I've made it many times, and now I get asked for the recipe. Cooking has always been an enjoyable part of my life. Ever since I can remember, I loved to watch or help my mother in the kitchen. These days, my 3-year-old son likes to help me. Hopefully he'll grow up to enjoy cooking as much as I do.
