This is a great way to use up leftover Turkey. We love this recipe so much that quite often we will buy fresh turkey fillets or a breast and fry it up with spices just so we can have this delicious slaw (although it does taste better with leftover roasted turkey)!

We always season our turkey with spices and give it a quick stir fry in olive oil for flavour even if it is already cooked.

To serve either mix the turkey in with the salad or put the turkey on top/side of the salad. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
