Sweet and Spicy Creamy Turkey Salad

Sweet & Spicy Leftover Turkey Salad

This easy creamy turkey salad is a great way to use up leftover turkey! The bite from the onion, the crunchy celery, the sweet cranberries and for an added kick – jalapeño. Because I love everything spicy. You can omit if you’d like, but you should probably put your big girl panties on and try it. It’s not overly spicy, just adds a nice kick.
