best use of thanksgiving leftovers so far

My parents froze some turkey for me at Thanksgiving, and I've been using it this past week, just to make room for the meyer lemon granita I wish to make with the rest of hedge's lemons. *drool* And you know, turkey cacciatore is okay, but really just sort of un-thrilling. But just now I made turkey salad out of the last of it for lunch, and I hope I don't throw out my shoulder patting myself on the back, but damn it was good.

Dice cooked turkey fairly small. Also small-dice scallion, celery and granny smith apple to taste. Sprinkle with a couple pinches of dried tarragon, crushed, a good shake of lemon pepper, some extra fresh ground pepper, and a bit of salt. Mix all of it with equal parts mayonnaise & miracle whip. This can be put on a sandwich, but to make it even better, put it on top of torn romaine & some sliced granny smith apple tossed with olive oil, sherry vinegar and a pinch of salt. Yum!

Sounds delicious...and I just noticed a bag of leftover diced turkey in the freezer when I was trying to make room for all the eggplant slices I fried up on Sunday!
