Throw Miracle Whip from the Train

I think most of us consider the phrase "turkey leftovers" to be more or less synonymous with "turkey sandwich." When I was growing up, our family ate turkey salad sandwiches lubricated with Miracle Whip on spongy white bread. Here's a healthier version that includes just a little light mayo for flavor.

Turkey Salad

1 cup shredded turkey
1/2 cup sliced grapes
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 chopped scallion (green onion)
1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons low-fat mayonnaise
Black pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients.  We eat this on mixed greens as a salad, on 7-grain bread as sandwiches, or in whole-wheat tortillas as wraps.

“In Spain, attempting to obtain a chicken salad sandwich, you wind up with a dish whose name, when you look it up in your Spanish-English dictionary, turns out to mean: Eel with big abscess.” ~Dave Barry
