Recipe by The Turkey Federation
"Impress your friends with this colorful chilled salad. Turkey, apple, celery, bell pepper, green onion and raisins are stirred up in a curried rice that's laced with garlic and ginger. This lovely mixture is then tossed in a vinaigrette, spooned into lettuce leaves and topped with coconut and peanuts."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

salt and pepper to taste
shredded coconut, for serving

This salad was delicious. I did make a few changes: used wild rice instead of white, add 1 tsp. curry powder and minced ginger to vinegar sauce for the salad. At the time I made it, I only had red onions, so I minced 1/2 of one instead of using green onions, but I think either would be fine.
For the meat, I had roasted a whole turkey breast the night before & used 1/2 of it for the salad.
Very, very tasty - indeed!
I made this for a local "iron chef" competition with the ingredient being coconut. I didn't win but the dish is delicious none the less!
I have made this, easy to prepare, dish many times and it has always been a crowd pleaser!
