Toasted Almond Turkey Salad

Use your leftover holiday turkey for this one...

¼ cup slivered almonds (about 1 ounce)
¼ cup plain GF yogurt
3 T. GF mayonnaise
1 t. bottled ground fresh ginger
¼ t. crushed red pepper
¾ cup thinly sliced celery
¼ cup chopped red onion
¼ cup dried cherries or cranberries (or grapes, sliced in half)
¼ cup golden raisins
8 ounces roasted turkey breast, chopped
4 slices GF bread or buns 

Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds; cook 2 minutes or until toasted, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; set aside.

Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, ginger, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add almonds, celery, and next 4 ingredients (through turkey), stirring well to combine. Spoon  ½ cup turkey mixture onto each sandwich bread.

Makes: 4 sandwiches.
