I pull out this recipe during the holiday season when I always have extra turkey to turn into a masterpiece. I omitted the peppermint and the peas, and it turned out just wonderful. I would suggest playing around with this recipe a bit and adding some stuff that is traditionally found in chicken salad, like celery and even grapes. It's very versatile and perfect when you're have extra turkey laying around.
